Milan Fashion Week Highlight: Jil Sander. . .


Jil Sander has hands down been my favourite designer of the past few seasons. The simple reason: Raf Simmons.  The designer has been exhibiting his talent by bringing a fresh approach to the company. He illustrates  pieces which are feminine and floaty, with the perfect balance of colour and texture. I love his mix of white pieces teamed with bold patterns or with a slight contrast of pretty pastels in the form of shorts, peg leg trousers and bouncy midi's. He adds an eccentric twist on knits with graphic faces- reminiscent of Piscasso-style faces. Simmons reassures us that 'Ready to Wear' is a term which directly applies to his collection. The summer is definitely bright thanks to Jil Sander.
