Jil Sander is leaving her eponymous label for the third time after designing for three seasons. She first left in 2000 after Prada bought a controlling stake in her company, only to come back in 2003 and then exit again in 2004. After Raf Simons started his tenure as Dior’s creative director in 2012, it was announced that she would be returning once again. Her last collection showed at spring-summer 2014 Milan Fashion Week. According to WWD, she is leaving for personal reasons; her in-house design team will be responsible for the Fall 2014 collection. Even though I liked what Simons did for the brand better than what Sander did herself, it makes more sense to me if the person whose name is on the label also actually designs the clothes. So I don’t know what to think of it. I guess, let speculation about who will replace her begin.


DSquared2 showed their Spring Summer 2014 collection yesterday, describing their inspiration as “James Dean flying in his little plane over the Bermuda Triangle… he crashes down and lands on this beautiful paradise”. And to illustrate this image, they set up their runway with a special waterfall, a crashed plane, some kind of rainforest and nearly naked male models soaping themselves down – which is totally what you would do if you crashed on a deserted island. I wonder why they never showed that on Lost.ImageImageImageImage
