JIL SANDER SPRING/SUMMER 2011
JIL SANDERRRRRRRRRR! Putting the fun back into summer again! Remember when you were a kid and you had crayolas' and a colouring book? Instead of colouring in colours that were advised by the book, you coloured in colours you felt like. The ones that were not really meant to go together, but somehow they looked really good? Well, Raf Simons at Jil Sander is that kid with the 24 pack of crayola fucking up the colour scheme, but being chic with it. With a palette of complimentary and juxtapositioned colours and styles, whilst staying faithful to his mantra of minimalism, Raf has managed to make sports-couture look oh so simple . He was inspired by the Hitchcockian women who were seemingly placid and vulnerable, but with an underlayer of mystique. Simons has worked with taffeta and nylons, there is a sporty feel to it all, it is fun looking on the surface, but serious couture below. Best analogy, or similie for it would be like going to university, dicking around for freshers week and thinking the whole first year will be copious drinking and statutory rape, then you start getting lectures, assignments and exams.
