Jil Sander Spring 2011 Menswear Show Finale

Here’s are two quick videos I took of Raf Simons’ spring/summer 2011 collection for Jil Sander. I apologize for the poor quality due to the lighting. The show was held outdoors in this breathtaking villa on the outskirts of Florence. I guess they were aiming for a sunset show but the weather didn’t cooperate with us.

… and here’s the final walkthrough.

Anyway, I had the pleasure of meeting Raf before the show started. He’s tall and he’s lovely. It was somewhat eerie to shake his hand. It’s like touching Jesus.

More pics and text to follow. It’s late and I have to pack… I’m going to Milan tomorrow!

I think I don’t have that many shows on my checklist this time around. As you know, I’ve been traveling so much the past few months and I haven’t had the chance to sort out my requests. So far I’ve got a few blue-chip shows confirmed: Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Gucci, Burberry Prorsum, Calvin Klein and then I also have D&G, Cavalli, Etro, Ferragamo and I think two or three more. I’m gonna make a conscious effort to go to presentations and showrooms of smaller labels.
