A Proper Goodbye - Jil Sander at Milan Fashion Week

Jil Sander ready-to-wear Fall/Winter 2012/2013

Raf Simons has left Jil Sander. Where he's going, we don't know, but he certainly left in style. Yesterday's show really was a proper goodbye. It was minimal, feminine, classic, modern...A true homage to what Jil Sander is all about and to what Raf Simons gave to the brand throughout the years. 
In the end a standing ovation was awaiting. Not only for a marvelous collection, but mostly for a great contribution to Jil Sander and the fashion world.
It is sad to see him go, because I don't even remember a Jil Sander without him. For me, he was the genius behind one of my favorite fashion houses. He was Jil Sander! However, I can't help but to be excited about the comeback of Jil herself, to the brand she founded over 40 year ago in 1968.
In the end all we can say is: Thank you, Raf for keeping the Jil Sander soul alive for so long!
How about you? Were you sad to the Raf go? And what did you think of the collection? 

Raf Simons deixou a Jil Sander. O que se segue para ele, ninguém sabe, mas que ele saiu em greande estilo saiu. O desfile de ontem foi uma despedida digna. Minima, feminino, clássico, moderno...Uma verdadeira homenagem a tudo o que a Jil Sander representa e a tudo o que Raf deu à marca ao longo dos anos.
No final, uma ovação em pé, esperava o designer. Não só por uma maravilhosa colecção, mas essencialmente pela fantástica contribuição que fez à marca e ao mundo da moda.
Foi triste vê-lo partir, porque nem sequer me lembro de uma Jil Sander sem ele. Para mim, ele era o génio por detrás de uma das minhas marcas preferidas. Ele era a Jil Sander! No entanto, não consigo evitar a ansiedade que sinto pelo regresso da própria Jil à marca que criou há mais de 40 anos, em 1968.
No final, só há que dizer: Obrigada, Raf Simons, por manteres o espírito da Jil Sander vivo por tanto tempo!
E vocês, ficaram tristes com a partida de Raf? E o que acharam da colecção?
