Jil Sander Spring/Summer 2012 Collection
Anyone with an eye for striking, prismatic colours will want a large slice of the action from Jil Sander’s 2012 spring/summer range. Designer Raf Simons has introduced a playful feel on this year’s pieces, which are bursting with vibrant, lively colours – the hallmark of previous Jil Sander collections.
The high end Italian materials reflect soft and comfortable design, with many piece featuring a lightweight finish that is perfectly in keeping with the warmer seasons ahead (we hope). The styles themselves – particularly the Toronto Blouson – are inspired by popular design from Simons’ youth.
Fine detail is clearly apparent in a number of garments; one example being the Jacquard T-shirt, which is a flourished mix of bright neon colours, giving a sense of warm, tropical vibes. Unique patterns and a premium cut give you an idea of the time and effort put into this year’s range.
These bold and loud colours sit well with dark, neutral coloured bottoms and footwear. Navy chinos are suitable; giving a nice, even balance of colours. The spring/summer colour palette would suggest that boat shoes and low profile footwear are best fit.
All of you loud, statement-making characters who crave unique, individual designs of top quality will want to visit Oki-ni. This vibrant range will surely satisfy your hunger for lavishness, and begin warming you for those sunnier days ahead.
