    I have such a soft spot for Jil Sanders. When I was a little girl, my family moved to Amsterdam, and my cousin worked in a fancy boutique, and she’d bring home beautiful goodies, and I still remember seeing the luxurious treats with the Jil Sander tag. I’m excited to see her bring the magic back!

    I am sad about Raf leaving Jil Sander. Even though Jil Sander herself is coming back. He’s done a remarkable job with this brand. Even down to his last collection.

    After seeing all of the emotional tweets after Raf’s double bow, I jumped online to try catch a glimpse of this collection. Thank you for sharing so promptly!

    Absolutely stunning! I love love Raf’s aesthetic, he truly is a genius! I really hope we get to see him doing his own label next. Jil Sander herself will have very large shoes to fill now….

    Beautiful simple shapes – a great collection. Wonder what Raf will do next, though I am thrilled Jil is coming back to her namesake.

    Very simple collection. I’m excited about the re-emergence of the sloping shoulders, so that I can now wear my leather jacket purchased in the 90′s.

    This is so emotional! What a wonderful final collection for Raf. It’s sad that he is leaving- he has designed such wonderful clothes whilst with Jil Sander- but I’m sure he has something incredible in the pipeline.

    amazing! he makes fifties shapes look sleek and modern. actually this is the first time i fully understand his decision to accept dior. now everything falls into place – raf at dior, jil sander back into her own.

    EVERYONE looks good in Jil Sander–One of my favorite labels. I am still wearing pieces I bought 10 years ago.

    I am a complete fashion outsider. I work in the sciences and am usually entirely practical. But Jil Sander always manages to walk the line between fashion fantasy and “I’d wear that” in a way I adore. This is no exception. Most of these pieces manage to look both 1955 and space-aged. Many are both delicate, feminine and glamorous as well as powerful, practical and smart. I would love to be able to afford such treats!

    The Smashing Pumpkins??? Really???

    I am confused as to how that was the accompanying track to such a lush collection. I wanted to hit the mute button, but I was in a state of denial and hoping I was mistaken…

    Trashy indeed.

    I’m so happy that you captured this, especially after reading Cathy Horyn’s quick piece today on the response to the show—to Simons. Lovely and so well earned.
