MILAN – Ferré is today expected to tap 6267 duo Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi as creative directors of the brand, according to sources.
This confirms a WWD fashion scoop last month.
Aquilano and Rimondi will replace Lars Nilsson, who left Ferré before the fall 2008 show in February without completing even one collection. The 6267 duo has quickly garnered media and commercial recognition with their line, launched in 2005, and has been pivotal in the relaunch of the Malo brand, owned by IT Holding Group, which also controls Ferré.
