In 2006, Vionnet relaunched after a 67 year hiatus. Since then, the label has hosted a revolving door of designers. Rodolfo Paglialunga currently helms design for the house, and, under new owners Matteo Marzotto and Gianni Castiglioni, just presented his first Vionnet collection for cruise 2010. Paglialunga spent thirteen years as Miuccia Prada’s assistant. He said he carefully researched Madeleine Vionnet’s Grecian-inspired work for his first attempt. Paglialunga will make his runway debut at Paris Fashion Week for spring 2010. See his new cruise collection in the slideshow.
