The Chosen One?


So now the ball has rolled to Raf Simons, Creative Director of Jil Sander. WWD has reported that ‘a deal is being closed’ between Simons and Dior at this moment. Altohugh no comment or statement has been made from either Dior or Simons, it is looking like this may actually be true. Simons, who took on the house of Jil Sander in 2005, is known for his clean, sophisticated silhouettes, perfect for the Jil Sander woman, but is it perfect for Dior?

Raf Simons

Since his Spring/Summer 2011 show, Simons has printed himself on the fashion map for a ‘must see’ show. His success at Jil Sander began when he started to experiment with different shapes and silhouettes.  So if he continues his journey on the fashion map with Dior, then it could turn into a very powerful success. If he rewinds back to his clean and simple style dressing career women rather then fashionistas, then this fashion partnership may dive for the dumps.

All we can do now is wait….

The Place To Be


Seems like Tokyo is rising up the fashion thermometer for hot new cities to show a collection. It’s SO HOT, that Mrs. Prada has now started to show her covetable collections in the Japanese capital. So why is an established brand like Prada spending even more money on another fashion show every season? I can only think of one reason….boosting  sales! I say a fourth fashion week should be added to the overflowing events on fashionistas calenders and get those sales higher and higher for designers. A recession free fashion industry could be on the horizon. Anna Wintour; take note!
