JIL SANDER is missing from the Milan Fashion Week spring/summer 2013 calendar, which will take place from September 19 until September 25. The designer will stage two shows of her comeback collection on Saturday September 22,having returned to her eponymous label in February this year.
Sander first left the label that she founded in 2001, before being reinstated in 2003. She departed the brand once again in November 2004 - due to an ongoing conflict with her label's then-owner, Prada CEO Patrizio Bertelli - but announced she was returning earlier this year. She was replaced by Raf Simons in 2005, who remained at the helm of the brand until Sander's reinstatement this year. He was hired as Dior's new creative director in April 2012.
