THE NAME GAME: Those looking for the 6267 slot on the official Milan show calendar released Monday are in for a surprise. Instead of the brand’s iconic four numbers, the duo Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi are down as Aquilano e Rimondi with a show penned in for Sept. 23 at 8 p.m.
Aquilano described the new name as a creative and personal evolution embraced by himself and Rimondi, but declined to elaborate further. According to sources, instead, it stems from issues with their partners in the company, 6267 Arte, in which they retain a 50 percent stake. Sources also indicated that there will be no 6267 spring collection, only a pre-collection, and that the brand’s future is nebulous.
