Lots of shiny new season wear has arrived at Oki-Ni. Looking particularly fresh are Jil Sander‘s collection and new arrivals from Folk. The Raf Simons-designed Jil Sander SS09 collection takes inspiration from German brand Jil Sander’s 60s heritage with lots of sharp graphics – like this ‘Metamorphosys’ t-shirt, left – and some lovely accessories (more on those later). Folk are also looking very spruce with lots of soft pastels and a certain winsomeness. How much of the latter is down to their clean-cut house model – who to my mind is becoming something of an It-boy – I’m not sure, but its certainly refreshing to have a new outlook on Spring in these jaded, frosty days.
