Raf - Jil Sander Says True To Her Fashion Aesthetic

Jil Sander has vowed to stay true to her fashion aesthetic.

The German fashion designer - who took back the reins from Raf Simons at her eponymous fashion house in April - says her first womenswear collection after her seven year absence won't break any boundaries when its showcased at Milan Fashion Week in September.

The 62-year-old sartorialist claimed that ''everything, in a way, I've already said'' and says she will stick to her motto of ''the importance of the quality and of respecting heritage''.

Jil added to The New York Times: ''That is why it's so important to express this idea of the value in the design. We want to make essential clothes, clothes where you understand what the value is and why you pay more.''

''Now I have more skills and more experience and we're in a different moment. Maybe it was good, maybe it was my destiny, that joint venture world and the time away.''

The designer founded the house in 1968, but left in 2004 after disagreement with new owners, the Prada group.

Jil - who most recently collaborated with Japanese high-street label Uniqlo - received rave reviews for her spring/summer 2012 menswear collection on Saturday (23.06.12) in Milan.
