With all the talk of Rodarte's contribution to Black Swan, another designer's possibly award winning costume designs have been flying under the radar. Raf Simons and his Jil Sander team created the outfits that Tilda Swinton wore in Italian movie I Am Love - and the film, along with costume designer Antonella Cannarozzi, has been nominated for an Oscar.
'Its a big deal,' Simons told Daily Front Row, 'We did everything for Tilda in the movie, so that was very, very beautiful.'
Tilda Swinton sported a look from the spring Jil Sander collection when she hit the red carpet, and if she decides to grace the Oscars she'll be wearing the label again. 'If she attends, she will be in Jil Sanderthats a fact!' he revealed.
And, invite and Milan Fashion Week schedule permitting, you might even see Raf on the red carpet. 'I would like to experience that once in my life!' he says. 'But then its the day after the Jil show, so I guess its very difficult.'More
