Alessandro Dell'Acqua May Not Be Long at His Own Line

Alessandro Dell'Acqua May Not Be Long at His Own Line

>> Alessandro Dell'Acqua broke with Italian knitwear brand Malo a couple of months ago, and now it sounds like he might be breaking with his own brand. On Friday, he sent a press release out through his public relations firm stating that both the Alessandro Dell'Acqua men's Spring 2010 collection and women's Pre-Spring 2010 collections "will be produced without my approval, as I haven't had the possibility to verify the conformity of the final product to the sketches I submitted to the company."

Cherry Grove, the corporation which acquired the Dell'Acqua brand and its trademarks in 2003, "has always been consistent with my style," Dell'Acqua wrote, "but in this case, despite of their formal assurance, . . . [they] decided to move forward without having me, the designer, check on the quality of the product."

Cherry Grove has not formally responded to the statement, which Dell'Acqua ended by disowning the two aforementioned collections: "I have to detach myself from these two collections that have not been approved by me and that I don't acknowledge as realization of my creations."
