Just Jil (Milan Wrap-Up Pt. 1)

Really, what is there to say about the Jil Sander show last Friday? Raf Simons transforms minimalism into the highest form of luxury. Perfection.

It's worth checking out video of the runway, courtesy of, to see the sculptural details in the second half of the show come to life. (I'm also pondering the assertion therein by the Washington Post's Robin Givhan that the models' failure to wear the clothes with "any great authority" lent the show a disturbing aspect. To me, the girls look beautiful in the photos, but maybe these are creations that demand a certain amount of life experience to pull off well in person? If that's the case, then I like them even more.)
