Raf Simons' blue-sky thinking

I'm just about to head off to the Jil Sander show, but wanted to snap the invite as it gives us the first clue as to Raf Simons' S/S 2011 vision for this esteemed house. Raf is evidently thinking colour. Lots of colour. The outside of the invite is cobalt-blue, the inside is tangerine, the envelope it came in was burgundy while the lining of said envelope is a fetching shade of fuchsia. Simons is showing in a villa a good forty-five minutes outside of Florence, with drinks planned before, the show slated for 21:00 CET and the afterparty set to continue into the wee small hours. More from the scene soon.
