Jil Sander Fall 2012 RTW

Jil Sander Fall 2012 Ready-to-Wear

About a week ago it became known that Raf Simons would be leaving Jil Sander, and Jil Sander herself would be returning to be head of the label. This collection from Raf is his last for the label, and wow, what a collection this is.
This is the best collection of the AW2012 season and my favorite work by Raf thus far.
I was watching this show via live streaming on Style.com yesterday, and I could actually feel the emotional energy running through the place.
I thought that the runway setting, with the flowers in glass boxes, was a bit funeral like but the clothes were anything but funeral like! The clothes were so full of life, and hope. The pale colors, mixed in with some blacks and reds, and the silhouettes that were quite sexy and modern were worn by beautiful models who walked to a rather contemporary and emotional soundtrack. Perfect.
The finale was closed with a crying Kinga Rajzak, and a crying Raf who got a standing ovation (which was led by Anna Wintour herself) from the whole venue. A moment and show I am never going to forget.

So, Raf for Dior now? Thoughts on that and this show?
And how about Hedi Slimane possibly replacing Stefano Pilati at YSL...?
Oh, the rumors! xx

  4. I watched the show online and I felt emotional at the end- I can't imagine what it would have been like to actually be there!

    The black dress with the full skirt is stunningly beautiful.

  16. I'm not a huge fan of Jill Sander, just liking her perfume line.

    But seeing this Fall collection, it might change my opinion about her c:
    Love the 4th one!
