I really liked the simple, but textured tees, especially when they were layered over the sweaters w/pushed up sleeves; brilliant styling. Also, great use of colour for FW. The collection, as a whole, definitely stayed true to the essence of Jil Sander coupled with Raf's modernity and pushing the definition(s) of simplicity.

there's something very pragmatic about these colors making a re-appearance in the fall/winter collections. i said this when we saw those beautiful color for diane von furstenberg for pre-fall. while there exists a segment of customers than can commit to color for spring and then throw all of those clothes away as fall mounts, there exist far more people enthralled with the use of color but would like to continue dressing that way even as the leaves begin to turn.

while these clothes don't turn me on the same way the spring offerings do, i find myself responding to the weight and heft the colorful offerings have here. the jil sander client is a very fashion-aware client and he will style those blazers with snappy brunello cucinelli extras and avant paul smith basics.

I'm sorry but when a designers does the SAME thing/trend for 3 consecutive shows (for both men and women) for me it's copying or getting no innovation or whatever you call it

Let me repeat that...someone change the channel

Besides the beautiful color story, I'm not seeing much I really like here. The mood, set, lighting, everything is brilliant, but the silhouettes aren't anything new. I wouldn't mind, but I know Raf is capable of so much more than this.

i don't know where one spring collection equals three fashion seasons, but last year raf simons presented a fall collection where the most daring color he used was grey.

Raf Simons is actually extremely careful with colours. I mean even this collection is quite tame for him. Despite the wide range of bright shades and hues, there's something extremely calculated about the collection as a whole. The colours are used carefully put together and never seem to "clog" the collection. That's what I like the best about this collection. While I wouldn't touch most of the coloured ensembles in a million years, it's hard not to covet one lime green sweater or one baby blue jacket.

I totally agree with you Squizree, even though I'm actually really into that lime green suit.
I've always considered Raf Simons as a visionnary and one of the smartest designers, in the industry. I always love his collections, for men and women and this one is no exception.
The [fantastic] colors are obviously the main point here.
First of all, I think they are the reason of that " bad tailoring". Its almost as if, the collection have an ironic message, like : " If you can wear a lime green suit or a pink duffle coat... who cares about the fit of your clothes."
Moreoever the Tee+coloured jumpers looks, of course create not only an iteresting styling vision. But with the slleves up, it almost gives a trompe l'oeil feeling.
Finally, I think the music choice isn't trivial. Even if the models walk slowly, the colors shake you up whereas the music appease you.

Completely in agreement.

It's very Jil Sander, the colors! The thing I most noticed are the jackets.

I love this. I think the sleeves on the jacket and purposely like that, which is indeed somewhat of a miss for me, but I can't help but to be intrigued by the crescent like shape and the bagginess of them; the way they move just feels so right. I tend to wear slim fitting everything, and I can really see myself in one of those brightly (esp. look number four, I believe, when I saw that movement in the sleeve, I kinda fell. It's the ochre colored suit, so good). And I know that the henley-esque high neck cardigans in the lime green and cobalt will be in my closet shortly. Perfect with white jeans for next fall. And I LOVE the continuation of this color theme from SS '11. I see no problem with it. It feels fresh and just really good at the moment knowing that next fall won't be another season of drab, blah clothing. It will no longer be a sea of brown, gray, and black but rather life and random pops; this is what makes fashion fun and special. These are really great and really STRONG options for the modern mans wardrobe.

Ok, my take is the following:

Love the fact that he infused color into menswear (carrying it on from his womenswear collection for Jil, perhaps?). I only have a problem with one orange and that vile vile green.

All that volume from the JS womenswear collection? GONE! And in here its just nice. Maybe he just over worked/thought the pieces? I would have loved if he couldve been a bit more daring .. maybe more layers or big volumes?

Overall, its OK

What I like most about this collection is though it has a sense of lightness in the volumes and how that when combined with color has energy and seems youthful, it is, overall, an adult collection. To me, it all comes across rather wistful. The textures keep it from all being too simple and the juxtaposition of the last two looks makes it all worthwhile. It's good, solid design.
