Rodolfo Paglialunga Named Jil Sander Creative Director
Following the departure of Jil Sander from her namesake label, the Jil Sander group has announced Rodolfo Paglialunga as its new creative director. First cutting his teeth with Romeo Gigli in the ’90s, Paglialunga then spent 10 years at Prada where he reached the title of design director for women’s wear before moving to Vionnet, where he remained until 2011. The new creative director will be based in the company’s Milan headquarters and will, in his words, “…carry forward the fusion between sophistication, luxury and innovation and bring the house [to] the next level.” The designer’s first show for Jil Sander will be for the 2015 spring/summer collection.
