Switching their own line's label from 6267 to Aquilano e Rimondi, I really do hope things get better (not more commercial, note from D&G). Though what I just said, when I was viewing the first few looks, I was a little prodded by how Fall Proenza Schouler + Donna Karan + Louis Vuitton + Burberry Prorsum it looked:
Looks like there's more...
Quoting from style.com:
"Although Aquilano and Rimondi do make pieces well worth crossing a department store to look at, the runway featured too many dresses that—nice as they were—looked derivative of Lanvin."
The review even continued to point on their debut for Gianfranco Ferre:
"It's understandable if A and R have been stretched this season after taking on Ferré, but once the routine's established, they need to do some more solid groundwork on establishing unique signatures for their own collection. "
Though superfically viewed, I do have to agree. Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi did really amazing creations under other labels like MaxMara, Malo, and of course, most recently, Gianfranco Ferre. But there's always something lacking for their own line.
