Raf Simons for Dior
It was during the Fall Winter 2012 Milan show of Jil Sandler when the news came out. Its creative director Raf Simons will leave the fashion house and Jil herself will return in to the house she founded.
The Belgian designer and Jil Sandler is indeed a powerhouse tandem that made the whole fashion industry love and adore them. It was really a sad story. Sometimes, good things are just meant to end.
Let’s revisit some of works of Raf for Jil Sandler.
And his final collection for Jil. Fall/Winter 2012.
Well, we need to move on and as they say, goodbye’s means hello’s. For every door that closes another one opens. Raf finally found a new home! He’s now the new creative director for the fashion powerhouse Christian Dior. He will replace John Galliano after being dismissed by Dior due to being convicted for anti-Semitic remarks seven months ago.
And for the record, Simons will become the sixth designer to steer the 66-year-old haute-couture house.
What to look forward to Simons? Minimalism, knitwears, gorgeous hats and bright colors! It will be indeed an exciting era for Raf and Dior. I just cant wait to see the fruit of this collaboration! What do you think?
Hugs and Love,
