Jil Sander gets a new creative director

Rodolfo Paglialunga has been announced as the creative director at Jil Sander. Formerly a womenswear designer at Prada and the creative director at Vionnet, Paglialunga will showcase his debut collection for Jil Sander at Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015.

“I’m deeply honored to have the opportunity to take on this role,” he stated. “I have boundless admiration for the brand as I strongly believe in its pure vision and values. My aim is to carry forward the fusion between sophistication, luxury and innovation and bring the house into the next level.”

Paglialunga’s appointment comes after months of speculation over who would take over reins of the label post its eponymous founder, Sander, who quit the brand after 18 months for the third time last October.
