Three quick points flashed through my head when I cut through fashionolgie's excellent early glimpse at Raf Simons Fall/Winter 2009 Jil Sander work.
1. Wow. An incredible, strong, unique SCULPTURAL collection that is wearable, collectible and eminently editorial.
2. Milan is overlapping with New York RE: casting choices for the first time in years (e.g Jil Sander opened by Women's Karolin )
3. Auguste certainly made an impression. Crying is the new "falling on the runway " but much more romantic a gesture .
