I just received the news that
Jil Sander leaves Jil Sander again
The designer will leave the fashion house for 'personal reasons'. In February last year Sander made, after an absence of eight years, her third comeback at her eponymous label, which she founded in 1968. In 2000 she said goodbye and then returned in 2003 and left shortly afterward.
‘On behalf of the group I want to thank Jil Sander for her remarkable contribution to the brand over this period,' lets chief executive Alessandro Cremonesi know. ‘Her outstanding design and creative leadership have been crucial in reinforcing the brand and positioning it to foster further prosperous growth.’
Her last collection was for spring-summer 2014. The fall-winter 2014 collection will be designed by the brand's in-house team. Unless Jil Sander has a fourth comeback in store ;)
