jil sander spring 2011 rtw

Minimalism, maximalism, and "couture gigantism" are all things that can describe what may be the show of the year. Taking couture extremes but doing them in a minimal way is really, really hard, and the color pairing Raf Simons used for his show is genius. I absolutely love the proportions and that one floral print! And I love nothing more than clean, sharp lines in a beautiful, rich palette.

There is something so breathtaking and unfussy about this collection. It's finally a colorful minimalistic collection, just what this season was lacking. The separates are all smart and new feeling, and there's something to say about an evening gown that simple - it seems to speak volumes over other more complicated dresses. Well done, Simons.
