Whilst the women’s fashion industry is suffering from the economic hardship of one designer after another, it was only a moment’s notice before one could see the trickle effect enter menswear–or at least view the beginning process. Alessandro Dell’Acqua, whom has done magic throughout the years for both men and women, may be a prime example–months after the designer left the label, Malo. Under unidentified reasons, Dell’Acqua and his parent corporation, Cherry Grove, have come to differences–leading Dell’Acqua to issue a press release noting that he will not be acknowledging the upcoming men’s spring 2010 bevy, nor the women’s resort collection–ergo, he simply submitted the designs, as the company chose to move on without him, nullifying him from final approval. As the mystery unravels, it leaves us all wondering–could the basic looks season after season (of what we really have left), be the next to go in the current economical times? And if so, does that leave room for new and exciting talent?
