Is Jil Sander looking for a new designer?
According to sources, the answer might be "yes." The Milan-based house has reportedly been in contact with several buzzy designers recently, including Simon Porte Jacquemus and Lucie Meier from the Dior design team that produced the collections in the interim period between Raf Simons's exit and Maria Grazia Chiuri's arrival. Neither Jacquemus nor Meier could confirm the rumor; but given how quickly brands cycle through designers lately, we wouldn't be surprised if it were true. {WWD}
