It seems that, after five years working together, the decision to part ways was mutual - and, if rumours are to be believed, Zanini has a new job lined up already. As an iconic French maison, Rochas has been an endless source of inspiration for me, he says. I learned a lot over the past five years and I feel fortunate to have been part of such a wonderful adventure. He unveiled his final collection for the label in Paris yesterday.
The news of DellAcquas appointment comes just a week after he stepped down from his role at Les Copains. The team at Rochas say that he was an easy choice for the job thanks to his unique vision and a sense of elegance, and he will present his first collection for the label in February 2014.
