A model displays a creation of Jil Sander

Jil Sander Dolce & Gabbana referenced Elsa Schiaparelli, and Aquilnano e Rimondi looked back to costume designer extraordinaire Gilbert Adrian. But Raf Simons’ collection for Jil Sander was a forward-looking take on the sculptural trend. Inspired by the work of French ceramist Pol Chambost, Simons’ sculptural forms — with contrast color pieces peeling away from, or spiraling around, the body — were thrilling to look at from every angle. The concept got the better of him in a few instances, but it’s exciting to see how his mind works as he charts the future of this brand.Christophe Simon / AFP/Getty Images
