For the spring menswear at Jil Sander, Raf Simons explored a darker and more sober direction than his recent, strongly-hued collections. I got a Bladerunner/schoolboy vibe. The former came from the futuristic iPad sized body bags that appeared in nearly every look and are pretty fun and genius (and a totally functional necessity. Right?) The latter came from the combination of slim jackets and loose shorts and trousers - outgrown meets growing room. Shorts appeared in a majority of the looks and all featured a very high rise and a quite a full leg - a flattering cut with a nod to the traditional. The jackets and outerwear were some of my favorite pieces in the collection. The shrunken, double-ended zip front jackets and the boxy, high sheen nylon(?) jackets were super sharp. I also really love the freshness of that pinstripe short suit.
