Raf Simons’ last Jil Sander show
Bittersweet is probably the best word to describe seeing Raf Simons walking out to thank the crowd after the finale of his last show for Jil Sander. To be honest, the Dior rumours are pretty overwhelming and it’s at its peak right now given that Raf, not Riccardo or whoever, is leaving their current positions. His last collection for Jil Sander seems to be way more feminine than usual as well, and with a hint of Dior’s new look, especially the last few gowns. Do you think it might be true? Raf for Dior?
He will be missed definitely, my favorite Raf Simons for Jil Sander collections are Spring/Summer 2007 – it’s THE acid colors collection before Spring/Summer 2011’s voluminous take – and Fall/Winter 2009/2010 – because, who can forget the stunning sculptural bold-shaped clothes which were inspired by French ceramicist Pol Chambost?
