I don't think so. Women who buy Chanel suits will just opt for less decoration, not confusing imitations.

I think we'll have to agree to disagree on this one, because I don't consider women who buy Chanel suits to be a major consumer of Jil Sander clothes. Sure, the Chanel woman and the Jil woman are probably in the same socio-economic class, but Chanel is far too stuffy and ostentatious for the Jil woman. I think the original commenter who I replied to was trying to say that there isn't much for a modern businesswoman (a demographic Raf/Jil plays well for) in this collection, and that's where I saw the Chanel-type suits key.
I could easily imagine the sorts of women who would never step foot in a Chanel boutique but would find a pared-down, reinvented Chanel-type suit from Jil Sander to be an attractive buy this Fall. But maybe that's just me.

I think she'll just buy a pared-down Chanel suit instead, is what I mean.
