jil sander spring 2011

Synonymous with "minimalism" and workwear in the '80s, the Jil Sander woman this season might be sneaking in some prints and even *GASP* mixing them! Raf Simons, who took on the label, shows us what modern minimalism might look like come spring time. 

Simons still sticks to clean lines and the basics with a hint of bold, but this time there's a twist: ruffles and dresses, skirts, and pants that bubble out. Seemingly shapeless, however, they look so chic especially with the tailored jackets. Towards the end, we see outfits that could be worn by any woman right off the runway. That is, if she has no fear of the colorwheel.  

Clean and crisp, yes, albeit baggy at times. It takes a special kind of design to make it look put together and elegant.
