Next up on our Milan Fashion Week livestream is Jil Sander. What can we expect from Jil Sander (the designer) for her second womenswear collection since returning to her namesake label? Guess we’ll just have to watch to find out.
We were pretty excited to hear that German designer Jil Sander was returning to her eponymous label. Her spring 2013 menswear show was well-received, and she remained true to her minimalist aesthetic. She seemed ready to make a big return back to womenswear as well, but the designer just retracted her name from the Milan Fashion Week calendar.
Jil Sander returned to the runway after a seven-year hiatus with her spring 2013 menswear collection this past weekend, and the reviews are in!
Are you ready for Jil Sander‘s fashion industry comeback? Because she sure is.
When Raf Simons announced he would be exiting Jil Sander, it was believed he was leaving because he snagged a bigger gig. Was Dior calling his name? Or perhaps Yves Saint Laurent? Probably not — especially since it looks like he was actually fired.
We thought we were finally seeing some light at the end of the John Galliano replacement tunnel, but it turns out we might have been mistaken. Reports that Raf Simons is still in the running to take over the top job at Dior were amplified by his decision to leave Jil Sander this week, but sources say that a move to Dior might not be in the cards anymore.
At least one of the coveted seats in fashion’s game of musical chairs has been claimed. Jil Sander (the brand) confirmed this morning that Jil Sander (the person) will be taking over the company from its current creative director Raf Simons in just a few short days.
Designer Raf Simons, widely believed to be the frontrunner to replace John Galliano at Dior, announced today that he is leaving his job as creative director of the Jil Sander label. So where is he headed? And who will replace him as leader of the German fashion house?
A number of technology blogs have reported on leaked pictures of what appears to be a Jil Sander branded cell phone today. And while the project is certainly exciting, the first thing we did when we saw the photos was scratch our heads and say, “Why?”
Move over pastel, neon is this summer’s palette of choice. From the runways of New York to Milan, neon pieces have been brightening up simple looks or making statements with neon-on-neon layering. But for those of us who don’t look as good in head-to-toe shades of highligher, we’ve collected a plethora of neon belts, skirts, jewelry, shoes, and bags to keep you looking chic without looking like you had an unfortunate run-in with a Spacemaker during finals week.
Jil Sander‘s next collection for her award-winning +J collaboration with Uniqlo will be her last. The Japanese mega-retailer announced today that they will no longer be collaborating with the minimalist German designer.
On Wednesday, Cover Girl celebrated its 50th anniversary with current and past spokesmodels Taylor Swift, Drew Barrymore, and Ellen DeGeneres, among others. But standing out amongst the bevy of beauties was Ms. Berrymore, in a tangerine-colored gown best described as a sack dress.
When the Daily Telegraph‘s Hilary Alexander pointed out Queen Elizabeth‘s surprisingly trendy military jacket, it got us thinking about the Queen’s style in general. Because when we see the Commander-in-Chief of the British Armed Forces in a military jacket designed by her royal dressmaker, we think Balmain. Sure, she wears a lot of pastel suits, but there’s something kind of nuanced about it all.
While other designers became increasingly obsessed with minimalism this season, Raf Simons joined the ranks of Miuccia Prada and explored his own brand of maximalism for his spring/summer 2011 collection for Jil Sander.
We’re still having some difficulty wrapping our heads around the chaotic organized fabulousness that is Fashion’s Night Out — it’s happening this Friday night! This year the nighttime shopping extravaganza has been ramped up with more stores open and more events to cover, and we’re going to try and see as much of it as we can — without driving ourselves crazy, of course. From Midtown to the West Village, SoHo to the Meatpacking District, here’s where you’ll find us on Fashion’s Night Out.
For a movie with a soaring, emotionally stirring plot, it makes sense that the costumes would need to be clean and a little minimal, so as not to distract from the plot. So we were excited to learn that the master of clean minimalism, designer Jil Sander, designed the costumes for Tilda Swinton‘s new movie I Am Love, which will debut in the US on June 18.
Don’t call Miranda Kerr a one-trick pony, or any of the other Victoria’s Secret models for that matter. These girls may have gotten their first big hits stripping down to their bra and underwear, but they’re getting a little more credit these days. With high end ad campaigns and couture shoots under their designer belts, the days of Victoria’s Secret models as solely sex symbols seem long gone.
