MILAN–Here in Milan, the question on everyone’s lips is, without a doubt, what is Raf Simons going to do next?
While some are staying mum on the subject (Hamish Bowles told us he couldn’t comment yet), Anna Dello Russo shared her insight on the matter with us.
“It’s really a shame for me [that Raf is leaving Jil Sander],” she told us. “He did an incredible job.” It’s true–ADR is not the only person who’ll be mourning the loss of Raf at Jil. But what about Dior? Perhaps we’ll get to see Simons’ expert design skills put to good use at the storied French house?
“No I don’t think so,” Dello Russo told us. “I wish, I wish, but I don’t think so. Because actually that rumor was a long time ago.”
“I think he will concentrate on his own line, [with] his name,” she said. “I think maybe adding womens next to men.”
Whether Raf goes to Dior or not, we really hope Anna is at least right about that womenswear line!
