After seven years, Raf Simons presented his last collection for Jil Sander.
Those expecting an all-black send-off would’ve been surprised to see a surprisingly spring-like collection with pastel pinks making up the majority of the collection alongside ecru, black, red and navy.
The theme was everyday woman.
Models with barely-there makeup and their hair pulled back into a simple ponytail made their way around six floral arrangements on the runway, wearing pink, coral or beige pastel robe coats.
Under their coats, they wore lingerie-like dresses with delicately knitted tops and chiffon skirts.
Classically refined black dresses, which were in total contrast to the opening pastel shades, closed the show.
Raf’s send-off was very emotional. Anna Dello Russo and Anna Wintour led the standing ovation for the designer, who returned to the runway after taking his initial bow this time in floods of tears.
There was barely a dry eye in the house.
Key accessories included lust worthy tri-colour slingbacks, clutches and totes.
