Jil Sander Oscar Night

I’ve been really lucky to be exposed to designers in the industry that I haven’t directed much attention to in the past. For the past year, I have been focusing on the US and UK markets. Admittedly, I have formed quite a fondness by working with them. Watching UK designers like Chris Kane, JW Anderson, Acne, and Marios Schwab blow up has been really cool. And I’d be lying if I didn’t say that most of my favorite designers are young Americans like Derek Lam, Jason Wu, Thakoon, Altuzarra, and Cushnie!

Now I’m falling for long established players in the French and Italian markets, which I'm currently working with on daily basis.

My point is that this morning I took a look at the Jil Sander Fall 2012 show, which will serve as Raf Simons last contribution as creative director to the brand (interestingly, Jill Sander will return to the brand as creative director). What a shame Raf is leaving because the show was wonderful!

I’m a sucker for pink and classic shapes, but the show was modern, retro, and new all at once. Pinks and reds ruled Raf’s runway, but classic navy and black also made appearances.

My favorite looks include a pale pink gown that hits subtly at the ankle, a white and pink jacket clutched demurely at the model’s chest, a navy gown, and the perfect silver Oscar dress worn with a cocoon style coat. I would wear the entire look on the red carpet, if I was attending! Someone should!

  9. First of all I want to say awesome blog!
    I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.

    Any suggestions or tips? Kudos!
