Lovers of high fashion everywhere will be excited to hear about Alessandra Facchinetti, ex-creative director of both Gucci and Valentino, launching a new fashion label in collaboration with Pinko called “Uniqueness”. Alessandra promises us interesting and creative new concepts that aren’t produced within the traditional season divide of Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter.
Alessandra says of her new brainchild, “I’m excited to have the chance to work on such an innovative and unconventional project, where the freedom to interpret the times effectively becomes the brand’s DNA.” We’re excited too, Al!
The designer certainly has all the right fashion credentials to start anew with a completely new label. Facchinetti has not only been creative director for two of Europe’s most legendary fashion houses, Gucci and Valentino, but also got one of the best career kick-starts ever when she got her first break working at Miu Miu. So, she’s more than qualified for this new project, no?
The first “Uniqueness” collection is tipped to be shown in Paris soon – keep an eye out. We can’t wait to see what Alessandra comes up with.
