Jil Sander Spring 2012

My obsessive scanning of Paris Fashion Week photos has left me craving something a bit more season-appropriate. Not that I can't wait to wear the leather bell skirts and deep burgundies shown for fall. In the meantime though, it's starting to warm up in New England  (meaning one reaches for the light-weight parka), so I'm looking to the warmer, near future. 

Jil Sander's spring collection is architectural yet loose, pastels made bold and feminine design accessorized with slick hair in place of jewelry. As a side note, I've always thought of Valentine's day as an excuse to wear pink and red together, and here they are, all grown up. Beautifully tailored, so a girl can just throw it on. This old thing? 

The whole collection feels, to use a compliment my painting teacher pays, "inevitable." It effortlessly works. It's so sad that Raf Simmons has stepped down as creative director of design house after his fall show. We'll just have to keep an eye on where he goes next. Hats off.
