Following the breaking news we brought you yesterday that French label Rochas is relaunching, news reaches us today via US fashion blog The Daily that Marco Zanini (pictured here with a model) is in talks to head up the new design team.
Zanini abruptly left Halston just before the international collections last month, after just one season, amid rumours of disagreements with the Halston board. Before working on the Halston relaunch he had been Donatella Versace's right hand man at Versace.
His first collection for Halston won much praise and helped secure the label's return to the fashion scene, so Rochas might be hoping he'll do the same for them - however they aren't confirming anything for now.
Watch this space.
