INSPIRATION Raf Simons for Jil Sander SS||2011... Raf Simons for Christian Dior SS||2013

I love Raf Simons as a designer, and I really loved his work over the past years for Jil Sander [all lefts]. He was just the perfect fit for the modern and sleek style of the minimalistic label and was able to make it always exciting. A different design approach could have been expected when taking on a maison like Christian Dior and its extraordinary heritage. I agree that Dior needed a restyling and some kind of refreshment, but I imagined the new Christian Dior design for SS||2013 [all rights] to be far more different from what Raf has done previously at Jil Sander.
