There's a saying in the fashion world: three's a trend. Meaning, of course,
that if a certain something trots down the runway more than twice, well,
it's probably going to be big next season. That said, we've spotted a bona
fide movement: old houses are popping up everywhere with new designers at
It started at NY Fashion Week, when Alessandro Dell'Acqua presented his
first collection for Malo. Then, off to Milan, where Monday, Tommaso
Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi, formerly of 6267 and currently of
Aquilano.Rimondi (long story), showed their first collaboration for
Gianfranco Ferre. Next, Jonathan Saunders pulled out all of the stops for
Pollini–check out this awesome grey coat with contrast collar and
cuffs–totally our favorite show so far.
That's three (trend!), but there's more:
Ballantyne, a Scottish cashmere firm with a serious history, debuted a
collection by Dawidh di Firmo, formerly senior designer at Prada.
Finally–and perhaps most exciting–Hannah MacGibbon, who recently took the
reigns at Chloe, will stage her first show for the house during Paris Fashion
Week. We can't wait to see what she'll have in store!
