Submitted by on Monday, 27 February 2012 | No Comment

After having first left her eponymous designer label back in 1999, and again in 2003, Jil Sander has confirmed that she will once again be returning to the helm.

The great news comes soon after the announcement that Creative Director Raf Simons is to step down from the label, amongst rumours that his new home will be at Christian Dior.

After an eight year break, Sander will be returning to the label on Tuesday 28th and she can be safe in the knowledge that no more personality and artistic clashes will be taking place after the label was sold to British private equity firm Change Capital Partners. A spokesperson for Sander, released a statement on the designer’s behalf, saying: “I am very happy and excited to be back. It feels like coming home after a brief journey.

The Jil Sander brand is ingrained in my very being, naturally, my vision of sophisticated, truly modern design stayed with me, as vivid as on the first day. Paradigms change and evolve from season to season, but the heart of a brand doesn’t alter. It will be a great challenge and a greater joy to design Jil Sander’s contemporary identity. I am convinced that the moment is as favourable as could be wished. The fashion world needs original voices and genuine signatures. I will do my best to, once again, join the choir.”
