This is first licensing contract for Aquilano.Rimondi and will last for a duration of five years, beginning with the autum/winter 2010-2011 season. With this partnership the creativity of the two young designers will be blended with the know-how of Gilmar, that has established itself as an avant-garde name in luxury fashion, particularly in knitwear.

The new collection will be shown and sold along with the label’s ready-to-wear range in Aquilano.Rimondi showrooms. Subsequently, it will have a runway presentation during the February 2010 edition of Milan Fashion Week.

Gilmar CEO Paolo Gerani reported that: “Gilmar has always believed and invested in the success of new talents, devoting its industrial expertise to the backing of innovative projects. Aquilano.Rimondi is an example of Italian excellence. We are proud to embark on this prestigious and stimulating professional partnership.”

Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi added: “We are excited and proud to have this new growth opportunity for Aquilano.Rimondi, especially because the collaboration with Gilmar – which we have always considered one of Italy’s leading knitwear companies – will ensure top-notch qualitative results for this new project of ours.”
