Jil Sander

It was mostly back to black for Jil Sander this season after designer Raf Simons’ colour-popping spring 11 fantasy world.

The look It was mostly back to black for Jil Sander this season after designer Raf Simons’ colour-popping spring 11 fantasy world. For autumn 11, Simons kept some bright block colours but anchored them within a black palette. Masculine tailoring was key.

Key pieces A knitted fuchsia and lime tank top had a preppy appeal while oversized mannish coats in striking Yves Klein blue had a more sophisticated, directional feel. There were also some abstract intarsia knits and instead of being elegant the patterns chosen were abstract and haphazard. A monochrome outfit complete with snood (a recurrent item in the collection) had a 1960s space-age feel.

Commercial appeal The next step on the colour blocking journey taps into the riot of colour that has been seen across the autumn 11 womenswear catwalks.
