Milan Fashion Week: Colour-blinded by Jil Sander

It's always fascinating how the women's and men's shows here in Milan always seem to synch - sometimes, to an eerie degree of deja vu. D&G trotted their picnic inspirations out once again, Prada's wire-mesh runway installation was a keep-over from the June menswear (ditto the stack-sole shoes), and in a carry-over from Raf Simons' Pitti presentation, Jil Sander have once again colour-blocked their invite (although this time the orange is on the outside) - possibly indicating another display of global hypercolor on the Milanese catwalks? Not quite sure if they will aspire to recreate the spectacular gardens of the Villa Gamberaia where that menswear show took place, but they certainly have the uncertain weather once again! Sander is up next.
