Floral bouquets lining the Jil Sander runway, housed in glass boxes atop stark white pillars; Raf Simons' emotional exit
After nearly seven years as creative director, Raf Simons' final collection at Jil Sander last Saturday was so beautiful and romantic with its light, powdery colours and soft, ultra-feminine silhouettes. As a tearful Raf emerged to greet a roomful of standing ovations, the entire event felt strangely pure and, not to sound eye-rollingly mawkish, incredibly moving. I feel like booking a direct flight to Antwerp, just to give him a hug. Ms. Sander has got some very large shoes to fill.
