Milan Men's Fall 2011: Jil Sander
I guess this is when fashion finally slows down to a screeching halt: This season, Raf Simons doesn't do an about-face from summer, but carries on with the vivid colouring book palette from the last season. It's a toned down version, without the theatrical volume and prints. The fit, though remains a bit roomier in the top, if the pants got narrower. It's a wearable, even beautiful collection, and I like the subtle oriental feeling from the fabrication - or is it the colours? It's certainly rather Japanese somehow. The coats could have been taken off the backs of a very hip salaryman, for instance.
