Raf Simons, the former designer for Calvin Klein, has now taken on a new venture with the icon brand Prada. He will join forces with Miuccia Prada as the co-creative director.
Prada made the announcement of the collaboration via Instagram and a press release, “From 2 April 2020, Raf Simons will join the Prada brand as co-creative director, working in partnership with Miuccia Prada with equal responsibilities for creative input and decision-making. The first Prada collection designed by Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons will be the Spring/Summer 2021 womenswear show, presented in Milan in September 2020.”
It was rumored that this is in preparation for Prada’s retirement, however, that is not true.
