Raf Simons Leaves Jil SanderFeb 23, 2012 @ 10:55 am
There is some shakeup in the fashion industry today! Jil Sander announced its creative director Raf Simons will be stepping down from his role, effective Monday, February 27th. Simons has held the position since 2005, and his fashion-forward designs for the label have landed on celebrities like Kate Bosworth, Kate Beckinsale, Nicole Kidman, and more ever since. This raises some questions, of course. “Who will take Raf’s place at Jil Sander? #speculation,” Tweeted InStyle‘s managing editor Ariel Foxman upon hearing the news. The label said in a statement that it will announce a replacement in a few days. As for Simons, we have to wonder: Where will he go? Will he occupy the vacant top designer spot at Christian Dior? Only time will tell!
