Jil Sander steps down, again, as designer for eponymous label, citing personal reasons

Jil Sander is once again stepping down as designer for the fashion house she founded in 1968, citing personal reasons.
The announcement suggests that no creative director will be named -- at least not immediately.
Sander, 69, returned in 2012 after Belgian Raf Simons departed for Dior. She had previously left after the Prada Group took over the fashion house in 1999, but returned briefly in 2003.
Jil Sander's minimalist look took off in the 1990s, with the man-tailored pant suit forming a centerpiece of her collections.
