Tilda Swinton in Jil Sander Spring 2012
Just as Tokyo Fashion Week comes to an end pops-up Tilda Swinton in a deliciously discrete and beautifully envisioned minimal blue knee-length Jil Sander dress from the house’s recent Spring 2012 runway collection.
According to WWD, “Raf Simons and his team at Jil Sander designed all of the costumes for Swinton’s character in the movie ‘I Am Love,’ which will be released in Japan on December 23.”
It comes as no surprise as Swinton, the queen startlet of embracing fashion’s changing winds, continues to break the mold of banal red carpet dressing with wardrobe choices that not only display her keen eye for avant-garde minded fashion but also manage to deliver a controlled message of high-design meets approachable, confident elegance.

And while that’s a considerable accomplishment on its own, we like that she alternates between outfits that may teeter on concept heavy with those that signal concise, smart design, like the Jil Sander number above she recently wore sans Erickson Beamon brooches to the Tokyo debut of the Jil Sander Spring 2012 runway collection.
Speaking of Jil & Tilda, have you seen Swinton’s latest film ‘I Am Love’ yet? If you’re big fans of the two like we at FoS are, we suggest you get yourself over to a theater and take in the remarkable film and its accomplished wardrobe provided by Jil Sander’s designer, Raf Simons. -Naveed HussainPublished on October 27, 2011
