The pair most recently were designing for Gianfranco Ferre, where they landed in 2008. Ferre has recently been purchased by a Dubai fashion group, which had indicated it was looking for a change.
Aquilano and Rimdoni will present their first collection in September during Milan's Fashion Week for the spring/summer 2012.
The duo's star has been on the rise since winning Vogue Italy's "Who's On Next" competition in 2005.
Tod's Group, which includes the famed leatherwear, praised the pair's "valuable experience and enthusiasm" in a statement Wednesday.
