MILAN — A mere six months into his job, Massimo Trumbatore is leaving his position as artistic director of the Iceberg women’s line.

Neither Trumbatore nor a spokeswoman for the brand had further comment. The spokeswoman, however, said the parting was “consensual.”

Italian manufacturer Gilmar SpA, Iceberg’s parent company, tapped Trumbatore in October. The designer’s only collection for the brand was presented for the fall 2010 season in Milan in February.

The Sicily-born Trumbatore began his career working with Alessandro Dell’Acqua, followed by design posts at Prada and Dolce & Gabbana.

Gilmar chief executive officer Paolo Gerani was previously in charge of design at Iceberg, and Giambattista Valli was design consultant for the luxury sportswear brand until the spring collection last year. Gerani said he was planning on focusing more on strategies and daily operations at his family-owned company, upon recruiting Trumbatore. In reference to the future of Iceberg’s creative post, a company spokeswoman said no further details were available.
