Alessandro Dell’Acqua Heads to Rochas-------
It seems as though the rumors, which began to swirl last week, are true. Rochas announced today that Alessandro Dell’Acqua—who stepped down from Les Copains last week, and also heads up his own range, No. 21—has been appointed as the new creative director at the French house. Dell’Acqua replaces Marco Zanini, who breathed new life into the brand after Olivier Theyskens’ departure in 2008. Word on the street is that Zanini is heading to the recently revived house of Schiaparelli—and perhaps, considering the success he’s had at Rochas, he is just the man for the job. That being said, he’ll have some pretty big shoes to fill. Schiaparelli has yet to comment.
