Alessandra Facchinetti Named Creative Director of Tod’s

Good news for those who are still stalking eBay in search of the amazing yet underappreciated work Alessandra Facchinetti did during her brief stint at Valentino: she’s been appointed creative director of Tod’s women’s collections. Facchinetti will begin her new role in March. “Her passion for detail and her dedication to the research of materials and manufacturing make her perfect for our brand,” said Tod’s Group president Diego Della Valle in a statement issued today.

The appointment comes about a year after Derek Lam announced his departure from Tod’s, where he served as creative director since 2006. Before taking the creative helm for ready-to-wear and couture at Valentino, Facchinetti spent seven years at Miu Miu, served as design director and then creative director at Gucci, and later worked on Moncler’s Gamme Rouge line. In 2011, she launched Uniqueness, a collaboration with Italian label Pinko.
