With only one actual season at Gianfranco Ferre under their belts, Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi - of 6267 fame - are already branching out into menswear under the Italian label's name. The duo will unveil the collection in Milan at Men's Fashion Week on January 18th, and those are absolutely all of the details available at the moment. So now that's: Gianfranco Ferre, Gareth Pugh, Roland Mouret, Carlos Miele, Christophe Decarnin and Matthew Williamson, all making forays into boys' clothes in the same year. Perhaps Valentino Man will be inspired to rejoin the class for the Spring 2010 shows? But anyway, if Monique Lhuillier announces a line of suits, we'll know this is officially a craze.

Rumor: Graeme Black is the New Designer of Gianfranco Ferre
London-based designer Graeme Black is the new creative director of the Gianfranco Ferre fashion house, according to Grazia UK fashion director Paula Reed, who tweeted the news earlier today. Black will replace Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi, who were let go in April of this year. Based in London, the Scottish designer spent several years in Milan, climbing the ranks at Giorgio Armani until he was appointed head of womenswear for Salvatore Ferragamo in 2003.
