Raf Simons Announced as Co-Creative Director of Prada

After months of speculation — including the rumor that he would be joining Miu Miu — Raf Simons has officially been announced as Co-Creative Director of Prada, beginning on April 2. The move sees the Belgian designer work alongside Miuccia Prada, with “equal responsibilities for creative input and decision-making” between the pair.

In joining the Italian label, Simons becomes the first person outside of the Prada family to lead the house. It also continues his relationship with the company, where he worked as Creative Director of the then Prada-owned Jil Sander from 2005 until 2012.
