Jil Sander Fall 2012

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.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Tilda Swinton, Amber Heard, Cate Blanchett, Felicity Jones, Diane Kruger and Andrea Riseborough

Rachael Harris In Jil Sander – 2012 Independent Spirit Awards

Rachael Harris joined in the fun at the red carpet at the 2012 Independent Spirit Awards, held on Saturday evening in Santa Monica, California.

She opted to wear a navy Jil Sander dress which she accented with a YSL belt.

The actress accessorized with Piaget jewels, an Alexandra Knight clutch and YSL shoes.

Whilst this look isn’t as formal as Jessica Chastain’s look, it still feels a tad formal for this event.

Jil Sander Navy Fall 2012

My first Fall 2012 presentation this season was Jil Sander Navy.

When we think of the mainline collection, we think of Tilda Swinton, Karen Elson and Erin O’Connor, but Jil Sander Navy is aimed at a totally different woman.

The ‘Sporty Meets Couture’ collection, which evokes 60s minimalism, mostly consisted of cute above-the-knee shirt dresses with full skirts and embellished collars.

Sporty sweaters were paired with jacquard cropped pants or printed skirts and puffer jackets with A-line skirts.

The outerwear was presented in mostly dark navy or black. The one with the fur collar stood out the most.

The backpacks and satchels had a ‘back to school’ feel to them, whilst the elegant clutches and purses would make for the perfect accessory on a night out.

Other accessories included leather gloves, platform shoes, leather flats and headbands in satin, leather and velvet.

The collection will be available from July and will range in price from approx $700 to $900.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Hailee Steinfeld, Chloe Moretz, Shailene Woodley, Celine Buckens, Ginnifer Goodwin, Elle Fanning and Michelle Williams.Read More…

Leelee Sobieski In Jil Sander – Fashion Group International’s 28th Annual Night of Stars Gala

Leelee Sobieski attended Fashion Group International’s 28th annual Night of Stars which was held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City yesterday evening.

The actress wore a Jil Sander Fall 2011 ensemble.

This Prussian blue cotton shirt paired with a chocolate skirt seems like an easy enough look to pull off, but I can count one other person who could do it justice and that is Tilda Swinton – of course.

You have to have a certain kind of attitude, a swag if you will, to make this look luxurious and for me she gets it right. She works it better than the model imo.

Leelee’s baby-blue eyes really pop against her navy shirt.

She wore her hair back into a simple bun and added soft pink lips to complete her minimalist look.

Tilda Swinton In Jil Sander – ‘I Am Love’ Screening & Jil Sander Spring 2012 Tokyo Presentation

In Tilda Swinton’s new movie, ‘I Am Love’ she wears a wardrobe of Jil Sander looks which were created by Raf Simons for the British actress.

The movie was released in Japan this week, so to celebrate the occasion Jil Sander held an exclusive fashion show and screening event in Tokyo yesterday.

Tilda gives us our first look at the Jil Sander Spring 2012 collection on the red carpet.

She wore a navy blue mid-calf length dress with Jil Sander light grey sling-backs and a black clutch.

This dress refines femininity with a modern simplicity, so don’t be surprised that Tilda’s version doesn’t have the Erickson Beamon brooches.
