Jil Sander Catwalk Fashion Show Milan ss2012
And again, Raf Simons left the audience at Jil Sander breathless, this time after presenting his spring 2012 collection. It was minimalist indeed, with the white cotton shirt as the centerpiece and starting point of the collection. Pure and simple. Other elements of the collection was marriage and women at beauty salons. The silhouette was gracefoul and lean, with mid-calf skirts and sleeveless tops. The show opened and closed with white dreses, the first strict and elegant with a sensual undertone, the last romantic and clean. In between there were suits and skirts and jackets and tops in paisley-print and gingham, sometimes with a transparant layer. Knitwear was based on Picasso’s ceramics.
Overall the collection had a cinematic feel and a Fifties vibe.
