Raf’s Farewell to Jil Sander – With news of Raf Simons’ departure from Jil Sander hitting this week (and a possible move to Dior), fall 2012 marks the last season that the Belgian designer will be known as creative director of the German label. It only seems fitting that his final season featured an expert showing of minimal, ladylike clothing which the house has become well-known for while under his direction. A color palette of powder pink, nude, ivory, scarlet and black set a classically refined tone for the new season. Simons also introduced his own take on well-known shapes with a play on proportion and color.

As one chapter closes, another one opens. Designer Jil Sander is set to take over her namesake label once again with Simons’ departure, and it will certainly be interesting to see what her vision is for the label’s future.

    This has to be one of the very best of fall 2012! The silhouette’s, fabric choice, and colors are perfect! It’s understandable why he’s in the running for head of Dior because these runway looks have the sophistication and elegance I equate with that fashion house. This collection offers a more refined glamour than the typical stark minimalism of Jil Sander. Really beautiful and yet still wearable…
