Milan Shoe of the Day: Jil Sander

Milan Shoe of the Day: Jil
Jil Sander RTW fall 2012

For his runway finale at Jil Sander, designer Raf Simons offered up a collection that was both strong and sweet. While the cut and fabrications of the clothing demonstrated Simons’ considerable skill, the shoes hinted at a flair for one-of-a-kind showpieces. In many cases, the footwear added a shock of color, and touches of neon orange and yellow combined with lavender, magenta and silver for artfully color-blocked pumps and sandals were both feminine and futuristic. This pointy-toe pump featured a subtle yet striking color combination while also working the season’s all-important ankle strap to lovely effect.
