BALMAIN’S NEW DEAL?: Ittierre SpA may have secured a license with Balmain, according to sources. The Italian manufacturing company had no comment Monday. Ittierre was part of the IT Holding SpA group that included the Gianfranco Ferré and Malo labels. After almost two years of government-backed bankruptcy protection, the sale of Ittierre to Albisetti SpA was finalized in January. Ittierre produces the C’N’C Costume National, Galliano and Ermanno Ermanno Scervino collections and Just Cavalli, which is to decamp to Renzo Rosso’s Staff International with the spring 2012 season. Albisetti’s owner, Antonio Bianchi, told WWD earlier this year that he was planning to expand its stable of licensed brands with new international fashion labels.
