German fashion designer Jil Sander has exited the house that bears her name, according to a company news release. This is the second time she has left the company. When Prada Group bought the fashion house in 1999, she left within months after clashing with the Italian firm's head, Patrizio Bertelli, the husband of designer Miuccia Prada. Sander rejoined the company in March 2003.

Designer Jil Sander has given the classic brown paper lunch bag a couture makeover. At her fall/winter 2012 runway show, Sander sent out models clutching her Vasari purse -- essentially a brown paper bag that looks exactly like a brown paper bag, except it retails for $290. What makes a lunchtime staple worth the equivalent of one month's car payment? Well, this bag is actually made of brown paper that is laminated with a protective coating, stitched in brown thread at the sides and has holes to ensure that your ham and cheese sandwich gets plenty of ventilation.

On Thursday Jil Sander presented her last signature collection at her Piazza Castello showroom here. The line that carries her name will continue without Sander, who resigned as chairman of her company last month, reportedly because of differences with her firm's new owners, the Prada Group. Sander, whose name is now owned by the Prada Group, opted for a more intimate setting without a formal runway for her final collection.

Making a statement with color. 1970s nostalgia for Mary Tyler Moore and Cher. An appreciation of fine Italian craftsmanship, right down to the table linens. Those are just a few of the takeaways from Milan Fashion Week's display of style for next spring. At Jil Sander, designer Raf Simons' modern color story packed the week's biggest punch.?? Set to a soaring soundtrack from the film "Psycho," which Hitchcock famously shot in black and white because he thought it would be too scary in Technicolor, the models lighted up the runway in shades of electric blue, acid green, tomato red, shocking pink and traffic-cone orange.

Jil Sander is a hot property in the fashion world, but you'd never know it. Even with her name attached to clothing sold in more than 120 stores and 10 franchise boutiques around the world, a best-selling perfume and a successful cosmetics line, few Americans know who Sander is. Perhaps that's because she runs her business, which she expects to do $200 million in sales this year, out of Hamburg, Germany, her hometown. Not Paris, Milan or New York. She might as well be working in Fargo, N.D.

PRADA Leave the shoulder pads in the past. Tough tailoring is Miuccia Prada's answer to the new power dressing trend -- tweed coats sculpted in at the waist and slit up the sides, fringed suede and crystal-studded tunic dresses. Compared with last season's killer heels, which sent one model tumbling to the floor, the shoes were almost sensible -- chunky high-heeled shoe-boots, fringed and studded pumps. And who doesn't need a pair of Prada waders?

Softer, less aggressive fragrances have replaced asphyxiate-everyone-in-the-elevator scents this fall. Many are exotic or Oriental florals; a couple are fresh and quirky. But the most noticeable differences among five of the newcomers have less to do with the fragrances themselves and more to do with their presentation. Bottles range from the strong and straightforward to the curvaceous and downright frilly. Jil Sander No.

Fashion house mergers have been making news lately as one house buys another and promises that everything will stay the same. It doesn't always turn out that way. In August, the Prada Group bought a 75% stake in the house of Jil Sander. But Sander, the queen of minimal designs, was reportedly unhappy with the merger, and this week she resigned as chairwoman of her company.

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the grand jewel of shopping malls, is the place to take this city's pulse. Tourists and locals alike raid the Prada store, pause to spin on the bull mosaic for good luck and soak in the fashion shows on a huge TV screen under the glass cupola. But this season, Milan Fashion Week has been preempted by the Olympics in Turin, and the Italian equivalent of the JumboTron is stuck on downhill skiing. Too bad.

Helmut Lang, the Austrian-born fashion designer of urban cool, is leaving his namesake label. It's the second major shakeup in the last few months for Prada Holding NV, the privately held fashion company that acquired Lang's business in 1999 and is run by Miuccia Prada's husband Patrizio Bertelli. In November, German designer Jil Sander announced she would leave the label that bears her name because of disputes with Prada management over financial planning.
