This is way off the usual topic for me, but sometimes I see a designers season and get excited, not b/c I want to own or wear it, but b/c I know what a pleasure it would be to photograph. That’s how I felt when I saw the pictures of Jil Sander’s Spring ’08 show. Certainly, I’m not a critic and only know what I respond to, but both Suzy Menkes and Cathy Horyn agreed that Raf Simons did something special here. Regardless, the top, uh, wrap piece in the pic below, is the sort of thing I’d hug a stylist for bringing to the set: it will literally be the photograph.
See more pics of the show here at style.com.
And assuming Willy Vanderperre (w/Management Artists) continues to photograph Jil Sander’s ads, I hope he enjoys it as much as I.
