Raf Simons Leaves Jil Sander

It’s true, Raf Simons is leaving Jil Sander. This is the continuation of my post on the Jil Sander Fall 2012 RTW line by Raf Simons. As I mentioned yesterday, Raf Simons has announced that this was going to be his last collection for Jil Sander… and Jil Sander herself is coming back to take his place.

Oddly enough, people don’t seem to be too enthusiastic about this change. Perhaps that’s because Raf Simons did such a great job for the past seven years or so at Jil Sander. Maybe they’ve grown to really like all the collections he has presented in the past seasons. For whatever reason, the fact that Simons is leaving Jil Sander has upset many fans of this brand.

But even that drama was not enough to dampen the mood during the fashion show for the Jil Sander Fall 2012 RTW collection. Here are more of the fab clothes and outfits paraded out on the catwalk.

Jil Sander Fall 2012 (13)

A wonderful onesie that does not look childish or dated. The jumpsuit was a popular trend in the previous year, but this take on that trend is very much updated.

Wonderful cutout at the front of this dress. I only hope they have one that’s a little shorter – long dresses don’t flatter my legs very much.

Above is a very pretty red coat, something that will definitely get everyone’s attention, if that’s what you are aiming for. Attention-whores, this is your chance to wear something tasteful!

Asymmetrical yet minimalist, the above dress skims the body and tries its best not to cling. That’s the kind of cut most women want.

The above shift is like an optical illusion. It’s as if she’s wearing a tube top with a geometric cut at the front, a separate skirt, and a pink blazer. But it’s all actually just one dress!

I remember having a dress pretty much like the one above. The tailoring was made to look like a tulip skirt, but because the fabric was soft, it draped beautifully at the sides instead of puffing out.

Oh, doesn’t the above dress look like a slip instead of a dress? Nice to wear on a date if you want his eyes on you all the time.

And all the black dresses in the collection had a combination of at least two textures. It’s a great way to liven up such a bleak color.

Goodbye, Raf Simons. His leaving Jil Sander will be quite a loss. We can only hope that the Fall 2012 RTW collection from Jil Sander is not too hard to top. Jil Sander, are you up to the task at hand? We shall await your first collection in a long time, holding out breaths in anticipation.
