Jil Sander Spring Summer 2012 Mens Bags And Accessories

Prada embraced snakeskin in myriad of colours for Fall Winter 2011. Women usually get all the fun with exotics... but it seems these days, men get to play catch up just as fast. For Spring Summer 2012, Jil Sander offers boys a chance to adorn themselves with Raf Simons' imaginative take on our reptilian 'fiend'... sporty bags/pouches and accessories all embellished with a touch of exotics... reborn in the most exciting palette of colours.

The collection is highly visually contrasting and outstanding. Too much or just right? You decide. Those neck pouches will probably see themselves flying off the shelves come next season... as does the python trim trainers or Dr Martens lookalike boots.

Noteworthy too are those tote bags with coloured python contrasted with mesh materials that nicely blend sportive influences with exotic sensibilities. I also noticed an interesting detail, not entirely if it is good or bad... handwritten 'scribbles' on the back of the soles that resemble markings on sample pieces. A raw spin and skewed version of humour on Raf Simons' part?

(More pics on my facebook fanpage. 'LIKE' my fanpage if you enjoy reading this post.) Look out for the collection around March 2012.

Thanks for sharing these images. I am very curious how these will turn out. Sort of a sporty version of Celine with a twist. I like, but I will be very interested to see the price points as well.
