When I made the resume about this season's campaigns I didn't include Jil Sander's;
partly because it didn't fit in any of the categories I selected - well, in the Retro ones it does - ,
partly because it's one of the most original ones this Spring 2012.
Natasha Poly and Daria Strokous, photographed by William Vanderperre, look like troubled characters of a classic horror movie, I would even say like Hitchcock movies inspired women. Of course, this season is the precise moment that Raf Simons has decided to move on, locating his inspiration in the mid-century modern design movement. Jil Sander show relentlessly pursued an elegance that was fifties in appearance.
