Alessandra Facchinetti worked in Milan for Miuccia Prada at Miu Miu for seven years before working under Ford for three and then becoming artistic director at Gucci.

Does anyone can tell me that Alessandra designs all the collection from Valentino ?

Including menswear, accessories, Red & Roma two second line ?

Or just womenswear HC & RTW collection ?

I hope she does all things.

Vanentino's menswear is very very very boring.

it was always my secret fantasy to have her and frida work gucci together and have their sensibilities play off of each other in a very david lynch kind of way. i think she'll do well at valentino as long as she isn't too respectful and understands that he along with his design talents are a dying breed. gotta move it forward...

"longtime accessories designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Paolo Piccioli have been appointed creative directors for the fast-growing category. There are also plans to strengthen the men’s wear division in the near future. "



My English is not good enough to understand all the report.

Does anyone can tell me that who is going to design mainline menswear accessories &

Red line menswear ? I'm craving to know who will design it.

I wish to wear Alessandra's Red line menswear & carry on Alessandra's mainline menswear it bag.

Perfect!!!

^ It basically says:

-Maria Grazia Chiuri and Paulo Piccioli have been appointed creative directors for the fast-growing accesories category.

-And there are plans to strengthen the menswear in the future.

It's pretty vague.

DREAM TEAM

ALESSANDRA Facchinetti is wasting no time getting her dream team together at Valentino. According to WWD, the rumour in fashion circles is that Antonio Pino, an assistant at Dolce & Gabbana, is joining Facchinetti to assist her on Valentino's womenswear line. The name being whispered to head up the expanding menswear line is ex-Prada, Miu Miu and Brioni designer Ferruccio Pozzoni, and, if sources are correct, announcements are to come soon.

Valentino Turmoil
Rumors swirling about Alessandra Facchinetti's tenure at the venerable house; Giambattista Valli pegged as possible addition

Monday, September 29, 2008

(PARIS) Alessandra Facchinetti's spring collection for Valentino doesn't show until Thursday, but already, rumors are rampant that her tenure at the venerable house may be short-lived."I heard they are giving her one more show," said a top editor, echoing the words of several other industry insiders. Of course, one more show could mean all the difference for the Italian designer who reached Valentino after a long tenure at Gucci and a brief stint at Moncler.

Facchinetti's first Valentino collection for Fall/Winter '08 was lukewarmly received, with critics addressing the abundance of Valentino staples instead of serious innovation. Her first couture collection, shown in July, fared much better. "She did a great job. This collection was so much more interesting than her ready-to-wear show," wrote The New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn. "I thought she completely captured the sense of Valentino but made it more youthful. I can imagine lots of women, young or old, being interested in the clothes."

The decision to hire Facchinnetti, who was Tom Ford's longtime lieutenant at Gucci and succeeded him as creative director of women's wear for two seasons, was made by Permira, the London-based private equity firm that bought a majority stake in Valentino Group SpA in May 2007.

"Alessandra," said a well-placed Valentino insider, "paves the way for Valentino's successor to 'save' the iconic house." As for that successor? Talk has centered squarely on Giambattista Valli, another beloved Italian designer with an abundance of Valentino-esque aesthetics and a growing celebrity following. "He makes perfect sense," said one luxury retailer. "After all, we have to sell these clothes."

While a Valentino spokesperson would not comment on Giambattista Valli, she referred to the rumors that Thursday's show could be Facchinetti's last as "inconsistent."

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh, GOD, I hope the Valentino SS 09 show is incredible because I would HATE to see Alessandra leave!

If she leaves, I will be infuriated. I think she's perfect for Valentino. I mean, Giambattista is a fine designer, but he'd be such a cliche at Valentino. Oh poor Alessandra! She can't get a break! Two seasons at Gucci and she's out, I SO hope that after 3 seasons at Valentino she's not out again!

I just am SO worried! I just can't stand it, how can a designer like Frida Giannini last for 8 or so seasons at Gucci, and then someone like Alessandra have such an unstable position!

I'm in shock!!! I thought she was doing so well...my fingers are SO tightly crossed that she stays!

I seriously hope this isn't true, it cant be!
Alessandra did such a fantastic job in the last collection, if they got rid of her now it would be awful for her and Valentino.

Wouldn't mind at all to see Valli at Valentino, he's one of my favorites. But can't they just have him back at Ungaro?

psssh.
