Italian heritage brand Pollini has named Milan-based footwear designer Erminio Cerbone as its new creative director, following the resignation of British designer Nicholas Kirkwood in November.
Cerbone, who has worked at several big fashion houses, including Prada, Jil Sander, and Dolce & Gabbana, will present his debut collection for the brand for autumn/winter 2014.
“We chose Erminio Cerbone because his training and stylistic vision reflects our culture, balancing product knowledge with a fashionable point of view,” said Antonella Tomasetti, Pollini’s managing director. “We are confident that, with his talent and experience, Cerbone will successfully express the ‘made in Italy’ philosophy which has always inspired and defined Pollini.”
Pollini is owned by Aeffe S.p.A., which also manages the production and distribution of brands like Alberta Ferretti, Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini, Moschino, Emanuel Ungaro, and Cédric Charlier.
