Runway Retrospective

jil sander fall 2012

Hey ladies, Cristina here. In pouring over the Milan Fashion Week offerings, one collection in particular spoke 'young' and 'sophisticated' to me, and that was Jil Sander Fall 2012. My favorite movies growing up were always to be found on Turner Classic Movies (I was an unusual kid) and I found this collection to be beautifully reminiscent of Grace Kelly.

A lovely color palette of blush pinks, reds, and navy blue were set against a stunning backdrop of flowers encased in acrylic boxes. Although this is a fall collection, it appealed to the (large) part of me that is very eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring!

Find more fashion inspiration on Cristina's international design and style blog, Fuji Files. And, remember to look for her Runway Retrospective column here on Young Sophisticates!
