The Alexxandro Dellï¿½Acqua brand was born with the debut of Dellï¿½Acquaï¿½s prï¿½t-a-porter line for women in 1996.
Alessandro Dellï¿½Acqua is available in all of the worldï¿½s major markets, with Alessandro Dellï¿½Acqua monobrand boutiques in New York, Naples, and Moscow.
Dellï¿½Acqua launched his menï¿½s line in January, 1998. Several important lincenses have contributed to Alessandro Dellï¿½Acquaï¿½s rapid expansion.
A womenï¿½s footwear line was launched for spring/summer 2000 and a new licensing agreement has recently been signed with 60-year shoemaker Ballin.
In the spring of 2002, an eyewear line was developed with Visibilia. The first Alessandro Dellï¿½Acqua fragrance for women was launched in January, 2001 through EuroItalia, and the eponymous menï¿½s fragrance was launched in August, 2003. A menï¿½s shoe license with Rodolfo Zengarini began with the Fall 2004 season.
In January, 2003, Alessandro Dellï¿½Acqua joined forces with Claude Arpels and the Redwall Group, who acquired 70% of the brand. Dellï¿½Acqua retained the remaining 30%. In the new organization, Claude Arpels serves as CEO and Dellï¿½Acqua is Chairman.
The Redwall Group's other brands include the hip-chic Redwall accessories brand, and the sophisticated and sexy Borbonese apparel and accessories brand, for which Dell'Acqua serves as Creative Director.
In 2006 comes Alessandro Dell'Acqua Knitwear for women, capsule of the main collection highlighting the designer's ever-famous experience in the sphere of knits.
Dellï¿½Acquaï¿½s love for the exotic women of classic Italian cinema drives his collections of curve-hugging, sensual clothes. Since 1996, the designer has been cutting womanly silhouettes with occasional frills and cut-outs, and mixing luxe texturesï¿½jersey with chiffon, for exampleï¿½to a smoldering, womanly effect that has caught the attention of current American screen stars. Heï¿½s also got sexy shoes and a fragrance.
