German designer label Jil Sander is to shut its only remaining German manufacturing site as part of an ongoing restructuring plan.

Jil Sander, part of Prada Holding NV, is transferring all production capacities of its women's wear subsidiary from the site in Ellerau, Northern Germany, to Italian subcontractors.

The move comes as the label, which was acquired by Prada in 1999/2000, struggles to push itself back into profitability.

Jil Sander, which makes most of its clothes in Italy, is also in discussions with the works council of the women's wear subsidiary to shake up its Hamburg, Germany-based headquarters.
