Jil Sander SS11

Jil Sander’s 2011 Spring/Summer line by Raf Simons proves that minimalism does not mean to neglect colour. In this collection, Simons employs strong block colors that if translated to painting would be regarded as minimal, non-figurative works.

Simons shows the world that at the forefront of minimalist fashion is an abandonment of decoration, adornment and excess, and a focus on structure, shape and cut, and how best clothing is agreeable with the body.
