What comes to mind when you hear the name “Jil Sander”? For those who know a thing or two about a thing or two, the brand Jil Sander represents clean lines, bold shapes, minimalism, and effortless execution. You could eat off of these clothes. The Jil Sander womens F/W09 collection was all those things and beyond. With this collection, Raf Simons has truly surpassed anything he’s previously done, be it his own label or his collections for Jil Sander. It was the present injected with a handful of futuristic elements, some elements reminiscent of Nicholas Ghesquière’s work at Balenciaga. The jackets with prominent shoulders and voluminized curves, spiraling funnel collars, perfectly executed variations of “the little black dress”, and bold coloured linings, were amongst many components of this brilliant collection. His die-hard customers were probably wetting themselves in astonishment during the show.
