Jil Sander Menswear Spring/Summer 2010: The Garden Party

 Set in the garden of a postcard-perfect villa, the models for the Jil Sander Menswear collection stomped through the pebbled estate to show off a selection of rainbow coloured pieces.

This was the perfect way to celebrate Raf Simons’ 5th year designing menswear for the Jil Sander label.
The sound: techno, the clothes: technicolour - there was a whole range of colours on display, from acid brights to pastels, all which were fused together and displayed on oversized double-breasted jackets, tailored trousers and simple t-shirts. Pieces were layered to add to the colour clashing effect - long sleeves poked out from suit jackets - while other looks were a rainbow to themselves, with silky screen print tees displaying simple yet vibrant patterns coloured in a variety of colours.

The collection itself was simplistic, but whole, and fresh. The clothes may not have been new designs, but the colours alone left me in awe. Simons had a clear vision of what this Summer collection would be, and his concise use of bold, pop art colours made his signature tailoring become new.
