Milan Fashion Week: Jil Sander S/S 2011

ENGLISH TEXT BELOW     Wow. Was sonst soll man zur neuen Jil Sander Kollektion sagen? Designer Raf Simons, der die kreativen Geschicke des Labels seit 2005 leitet, hat Muster und Farben in die sonst so zurückhaltende Welt des Labels gebracht. Und auch in Fragen der Silhouette ist der Designer, der für sein Talent der exakten Linien- und Schnittführung bekannt ist, neue Wege gegangen: dem Körper raumgebende Kleider und weite, lange Röcke gab es auf dem Laufsteg zu sehen, dazu weite Parkas und Mäntel. Und das in bunten Farbkombinationen, Blockstreifen und Blumenmustern: rosa-weiße Querstreifen in Rockform zu schwarz-transparenten Längsstreifen als Top; ein korallenfarbener Blazer zu magentafarbenen Top und orangenem Volant mit schwarzer Hose; grüner Rock über blaue Hose mit magentafarbenem Rock. Raf Simons scheint sich mehr von der Geschichte des Labels Jil Sander zu befreit zu haben und seine eigene Position in den Vordergrund zu rücken. Warum nicht?

Wow! This season’s Jil Sander women’s collection was a surprising one: The label, known for its minimalistic and subtle elegance isn’t one you’d expect to see flower dresses and multicolored ensembles. But this time Raf Simons, Creative Director of Jil Sander since 2005, made a bold move (just like Miuccia Prada…maybe that’s because Jil Sander belongs to the Prada Group…) and did exactly that: monochrome garments in combinations such as coral-magenta-orange-black or green-blue-magenta; a bubble shaped dress made out of an allover flower print, striped dresses and tops. It seems Simons has found a new self-esteem in being the label’s creative director. And: why not?
