Jil Sander: Spring Summer 2011

Yesterday, Jil Sander designer Raf Simons unveiled his fifth collection for the label. The show took place at a villa in Florence and the collection was inspired by the setting and nature. I think that the best word to describe this collection is electrical. I love love love love it. It gets me excited and makes me want to dance. The whole collection is so vibrant and fun, but also exceptionally tailored. Bravo, Mr. Simons!

The fashion world was abuzz on Twitter last night and @BryanBoy tweeted this photo of the jackets' backs with reflector velcro straps:

@BryanBoy: Some of the jackets have reflector velcro straps on the back. Love this detail.
