It’s even gotten to the point where market sources are pointing to two developments as evidence: Prada‘s sister label, Miu Miu, recently moved its headquarters to Milan from Paris, and it’s been reported that Simons is busy looking for an apartment in the Italian fashion capital.
The idea that the Belgian designer could be moving to Prada is not farfetched, after all, Simons is no stranger to the group who hired him as creative director of Jil Sander, a position he held from 2005 to 2012. He moved on to Dior then Calvin Klein, which he left at 2018 and has since, kept a very low profile.
With no comment from Prada Group, only time will tell whether Simons and Miuccia Prada have surprises in store for us. Watch this space for further developments…
