I missed the Jil Sander press show because I got lost (some advice: do not use Google GPS in Milan) but Raf Simons' staff was kind enough to let me watch with the buyers.

I'm glad, because the show was bloody good. Simons' aesthetic is certainly minimalist, but he's also directional. Those two adjectives don't automatically go hand in hand-in-fashion.

Other than the formfitting jumpsuits--which I'm assuming will be tailored a bit more loosely for retailers--I felt the urge to purchase every piece. My guess is that the buyers surrounding me will invest quite a bit of budget in JS come fall. The top ten looks:

8. The dress suit done right.

7. My favorite inadvertent

6. Simons' interpretation of Chanel's tweed suit.

5. The thick wool adds a rough edge to an otherwise pristine ensemble.

4. This pantsuit confirmed that pinstripes will indeed work their way back into our wardrobes.

3. The intensity of this speckled wool blazer was enhanced by the sheer wisp of a skirt below.

2. Slick and bizarre at once.

1. A day-to-night dress that works as well at the office as it would at a cocktail party. I'm saving up!
