Milan Fashion Week in autumn 2020 was already new thanks to Giorgio Armani's decision to show his collection in an empty room due to the outbreak of the corona virus. Now the Italian fashion capital is back in the headlines due to an unexpected announcement.

Rumors have been circulating for months about where Raf Simons would end up after leaving Calvin Klein. Well, we finally know the answer. It was just announced during the Milan Fashion Week that the iconic favorite designer was joining the Italian institution Prada.

Simon's new appearance as co-creative director alongside Miuccia Prada does not begin until April with the premiere of the first joint collection of the design duo during the Milan Fashion Week in spring 2021. “As creative people, we have a need to engage in a dialogue in order to create emotions and co-creation bring, ”said Simons. In case of questions, the designer's Raf Simons label continues.

We are looking forward to this new partnership and our minds are spinning to imagine what the result will look like. Simons has completely changed Calvin Klein's clothing business and offers everything from shark T-shirts and tanks to balaclavas. Prada has been going to the old school lately by bringing back its legendary nylon bags with a lasting touch. Who knows what the dynamic duo will send over the runway?

However, we can guarantee one thing: everyone will visit the Prada Spring Show 2021 in September.
