Is that a plastic shopping bag? It makes me very sad to see such an item touted as stylish accessory when most of the world is trying to do away with them. Sure, fashion is not the most green of industries, but why lend merit to such an unnecessary and environmentally damaging piece of plastic. For me, this ruins an otherwise beautiful collection – it vindicates the critics who say the fashion world is out of touch with reality. Sorry, I love every other photo on the page – just not the plastic bag.
I'd love to see a fashion house design shopping bags for a department store over the holidays. It would get people to reuse them — especially if the different sizes emulated clutches, handbags and totes, etc. I'm thinking Tory Burch for Bloomingdale's or Michael Kors for Macy's. Although, it occurs to me as I type this that 99% of the male population probably doesn't want to be seen sporting a paper "pocketbook."
anyone who really loves and UNDERSTANDS fashion will adore this collection. Others, will pay attention to minor details like plastic bags,even when they are used as a statement,(but we really didnt expect that they would understand it…For those there will always be H&M…
Hmm. The colors are so mouthwateringly saturated and bright — refreshing after the fall neutrals all over the place. You have to be pretty trim, tall, and confident in your body to add those extra bulgy volumes to it, though. I'd love the fabrics in sleeker shapes!
Well, Jil Sander has really done it this time. Just when we all thought minimal luxe and simple separates were her trademark, she has caused every jaw in fashion to drop with this colour-pop-tastic collection. It is mesmerising. Jil you genius. X
Now just to get Aucklanders into Jil Sander! Everyone here is in black, black, black! All the time! Ugh! This is so visually refreshing! I love! P.S: To all the haters I'm sure the 'plastic' bag was of the eco-friendly persuasion =P
So funny…You must have been crawling the web late last night at the same time I was :D I tried search terms < "Raf Simons collection ,long skirt, with a T-shirt " > except got nothing.You got the best JS images whereas I got redirected to 2007 :( So thanks for finding what I was hunting all night :)
But yes indeed this trend is not what NYC was expecting. For me, a color addict all that color feels good. I'm loving what Raf Simons has been up to :)
Thanks Sat for showing us some of the best images of the show.
What beautiful shapes created by these clothes. I love the white and pink outfit, the body tight top and the way the bold colour moves in a giant, diagonal like splash. It makes all over print seem so yesterday. Yay I have been waiting for this!!!!!
So many runway shows are enchanting, but on body types that make the clothes appealing. As a small, petite woman the outfits with dramatic billowing shapes would look ridiculous on me and many other women. Sometimes I wish we would be considered more by designers. After all, these long lanky types are more the exception, than the usual, seen in the world.
I love the explosion of color Milan is giving us. It makes the NY collections with its muted neutrals look boring and out of step with optimism coming out of Italy. Shouldn't that be the other way around. Outside of PS and Michael Kors easy breezy chic, I think Milan has thus far hit all the right notes. Prada and Jil Sander are by the most directional collections. This will make a Paris very interesting.
This is one of the best collections I have ever seen. It's modern, sexy and it will remain classic for years to come! My favorite part of the Jil Sander show is the opening outfits! Thank God for Raf Simons, he's a genius!
For less than ideal figures, some of these designs won't be remotely flattering or practical. That said, the deep blue-violet maxi-coat thing is amazing and gives me a serious clothes jones. Could I actually pull off wearing it? Being only 5'5", no. Love a lot of these proportions and shapes, just not on my body. But go on with your bad selves, other-people-who-can-rock-it!
Color is the main takeaway message for me here, and as a forever color lover these unabashedly bold, saturated splashes are exhilerating. The simple white top with balloon ball-skirt, accented with the vivid botanical print at the midsection, is gorgeous. It's a different, and interesting, way to accentuate the waist. I also love how sharp and fresh the red/fuschia/green combo looks with black. With this and the Jonathan Saunders/Paul Smith collections, I'm really inspired. Can't wait to see if, and how, these looks are going to be interpreted for regular retail.
Colour, Colour, Colour. Jill Sanders is very bold with what she does, although not having the detailing that is often seen on the catwalks, she somehows compensates for this with great cuts and a blend of colours. Although I would say that you have to be a very confident person to pull this of.
I agree that this has been the best collection of the season (so far, wait for Paris!) Maximalism at its best. I shall definitely try and incorporate some of these colour combinations with my high street wardrobe come Spring.
Yes, but what statement do plastic bags make here? Fashion should be a mix of the subversive and beautiful – but the statement I see in choosing to show plastic bags (this wouldn't hold true 5 years ago or even one) is that being fashionable is more important than anything else. When the green "trend" started it became a hot issue – which like all hot issues or trends would die. When the "this is not a plastic bag" tote has become tacky, plastic becomes tres chic…?
to anonymous @ 12.12: its an attempt to trivialize the high technicisms of the haute couture methods which were used in the collection. in your language: "you can wear couture every day, even for shopping", which is an impossibility but there resides the magic of fashion….
About the plastic bag…I find it interesting that thus far very little mention has been made of the fact that this idea has been done before, most notably by Margiela. In fact, a whole collection was designed around the shape of the plastic bag. Not too long ago I was a given a white cloth version with a purchase made at one of the maison boutiques.
I haven’t checked in here for some time as I thought it was getting boring, but the last handful of posts are really good quality so I guess I’ll add you back to my daily bloglist. You deserve it my friend. :)

Dude, please tell me that youre going to write far more. I notice you havent written another blog for a while (Im just catching up myself). Your blog is just also important to be missed. Youve obtained so considerably to say, these knowledge about this topic it would be a shame to see this blog disappear. The internet needs you, man!
Thats a very good feedback. Wondering what you think of its implication on society as a whole though? There are times when things like this begin to have global expansion and frustration. Ill be around soon to check out your response.
I donâ€™t actually understand how how this is much different between the Daily News printing this or some internet blog. Content like this must to be administered out more to the public. I wish that someone else in the USA would want to take a stance like this.
