Over the last few seasons Raf Simons has made a real statement with colour at Jil Sander womens wear and yesterday his use of black was just as striking. The colour dominated the whole collection appearing on everything from tops teamed with tailored trousers to gloves and trenchcoats that felt like an ode to 'The Matrix'.
Who the Jil Sander man was this season was unknown, as Simons was reluctant to explain backstage instead insisting that he is anyone you want him to be. What we do know is that the man is powerful and is not tied to a specific age. The beautifully tailored suits was something you could imagine on a middle aged banker while the whale printed knitwear that popped towards the end and the round neck leather tops had a youthful feeling about them.
