Little causes as much speculations and rumours in the fashion sphere as when designers are leaving their post in iconic houses, voluntarily or not. Last week the Kering group announced the departure in February of Patrizio di Marco, Gucci’s chief executive, and Frida Giannini, its creative director, after 10 years at the helmet. The rumoured list of successors has since taken of, Riccardo Tisci, Joseph Altuzarra, Peter Dundas, Stefano Pilati, Thomas Maier, Maria Grazia Chiuri, and the latest contender in the loop, Hedi Slimane. How about Tom Ford, did I say that?

French-Italian designer Giambattista Valli, will be launching a new more playful line at Milan Fashion Week in September called Giamba.

“All my friends call me Giamba, and the moniker reflects the spirit of this new project. It’s another side of the same coin, another collection that runs in parallel with the designer brand, one completing the other,” Valli told WWD. “There is also a playful, underground and sexy side in me and in my designs that you will see in the Giamba line. I’ve been thinking about it for a while and waited for the right time, and now it’s matured. I am really very happy.”
