    Unfortunately I found it quite boring; the only pieces I enjoyed were the final loose tailoring which really just matched spring's menswear and that little dark blue drop-waist.
    The strange frills on the trousers/blouses seemed very stuck-on and the shapeless attempts really could not leave the models backs. The formerly stated elements and the high, long gathered skirts felt like a cringeworthy nod to Cristobal Balenciaga while god only knows where the random floral-print gown or the unusual 'attempted-to-pull-it-over-her-head' draped dress came from. But then, of course the minimal pieces with the contrast colour rectangles and squares were just references to Raf's previous work at Jil.

    Another disappointment from Milan.

    I love Raf Simons and Jil Sander but this is another passable collection. It is repetitive, and the volume ideas aren't really special - nice construction, tailoring, colours, shapes, etc., some of the dresses are almost regal in effect, but I just can't get worked up over it all.

    Raf was inspired by Marc Audibet

    I'm sucker for bold colors and oval shape. This is the collection I love. And yep it can see the whole US Vogue art direction set all over this.

    I don't really see much relevance in these designs, as well as cohesiveness in the line up as such - those farmiliar suiting outfits, which remain as a reminder of the house's origin, feel quite lost presented between the pieces that obviously bear a very obvious Balenciaga reference.

    I always thought that a Jil Sander design should always be characterized by a certain pragmatism in shape and wearability, as well as an unfussy ease for the woman to wear, which would be somewhat reminiscent of menswear tailoring - Sadly, I don't see any of that reflected in the outfits that were presented on the runway. This is yet another collection by Raf Simons that feels 'studied' and 'art-house-y', but without an element of quirk that people like Hussein Chalayan would always have, even in theit most wearable designs. Quite a big let down, to be perfectly honest...

    if u see the whole collection, at the end it becomes boring... anyway, it´s really fresh breathe of summer at Jil Sander and individually pieces will fresh summer wardrobe definitely.

    The maxi dresses that created a balloon-y silhouette in motion were quite unflattering. I'm not too keen on the frills either. The colours were lovely though and even if I'm a bit disappointed I have a feeling it might grow on me.

    I really loved the styling in the last two pictures (with the coats). That's my kind of style.
