I'm sad because I loved her work, but her latest collections aren't that appealing! I think she lost her game, last show was so boring....
Who will design for the house now? Raf where are you?!
Raf made such stunning collections, I think he could do both, like Karl with Fendi & Chanel! My fingers are crossed!

-Seriously, she needs to get her sh** together.
-I'm pretty sure someone has been dying to use "third time is not the charm"
-I'm 60% happy because lbr, her collections have been such a snoozefest.

"For personal reasons," I hope she is okay. She turns 70 in November.

MILAN, Italy — Designer Jil Sander is set to leave her namesake brand for the third time for “personal reasons,” according to the company. A replacement for Sander was not announced and the upcoming Fall/Winter 2014 collection will be designed by the brand’s in-house team.

After an eight-year absence, Sander returned to the house bearing her name in February 2012, succeeding Raf Simons, who was the brand’s creative director since 2005.

Alessandro Cremonesi, Jil Sander’s chief executive, said in a statement: “On behalf of the group, I want to thank Jil Sander for her remarkable contribution to the brand over this period. Her outstanding design and creative leadership have been crucial in reinforcing the brand and positioning it to foster further prosperous growth.”


Sander founded the brand, known for its minimalist aesthetic, in Hamburg, Germany, in 1968. In 1999, she sold 75 percent of her company to Prada Group, staying on as creative director and chairwoman, but unexpectedly resigned shortly afterwards, following disagreements with Prada CEO Patrizio Bertelli.

She returned to the label in May 2003, after Bertelli called a truce, but left again after just two collections, citing insurmountable differences.

In the intervening years, the brand changed hands two more times. In February of 2006, Change Capital Partners acquired the label from Prada Group. Two years later, it was sold to Japan’s Onward Holdings.

They let Raf Simons go for someone who would leave again after just a few seasons? It does seem a little ridiculous at this point. It's a shame, this comeback was rather awkward and I wonder what it will mean for her label. Good luck to her with whatever she chooses to do with her life now, I hope a good successor can be found.
