Purity and simple elegance were the themes at hand at the Jil Sander Spring 2012 show. Designer Raf Simons claimed that he was influenced by the works of Picasso, calling the painter the "icon of modernism."
For a fashion house that is so well known exclusively for its elitism and sophistication, the Jil Sander Spring 2012 collection did not disappoint in any way. The crisp, white shirts that the label has made famous were a staple that somehow maintained a level of freshness that was enough to keep audiences intrigued.
One after the other, glossy, prim and proper looks were sent down the runway to "ooh's" and "ahh's" from elegant, fashionable women everywhere. The Jil Sander Spring 2012 collection proved that clothes do not have to be outrageous and shocking in order to be memorable. For that, fans of minimalism, such as myself, are eternally grateful to Raf Simons.
