German fashion designer Jil Sander will not hold a runway show in January during Milan Men’s Fashion Week.

WWD says “the Milan-based house may be mulling a change in creative direction and has been in touch with a number of in-the-news designers recently, including rising French fashion star Simon Porte Jacquemus and Lucie Meier, one half of the Swiss design duo that ably handled the reins at Dior between the exit of couturier Raf Simons and the arrival of his successor, Maria Grazia Chiuri.”

However, Franco Pené, chairman of Gibò Group, a subsidiary of Onward Holdings, which controls Jil Sander, said at the time that current creative director Rodolfo Paglialunga is “on board, present and active, and is developing the brand’s fall-winter collection. There are a lot of rumors, but all is proceeding regularly with Rodolfo.”

The shows’ official calendar is not out yet, but a few brands are expected to skip Milan this season. Bottega Veneta showed its men’s wear in September, as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations and Gucci is said to show its coed show in February.
