It seems the separation is mutual and amicable; Giorgetti has stated that he is leaving so he can give more time and attention to his contemporary brand, MSGM. He launched MSGM in 2009 and had continued as creative director there alongside his responsibilities at Pucci, however now he feels it is time to focus solely on the brand he created.
