Jil Sander

Autumn-Winter 2013/14 

A Jil Sander collection is always a highlight during fashion week and now with the master back in the front seat, the minimalistic and sculptured silhouettes that are craved could enter.

Not too dissimilar to the work Raf Simmons produced, Jil Sander focused more on the texture of the garments as was apparent with the inclusion of glossy fur which acted as detailing on thick double breasted knee length coats in an array of lulled tonings. Print seemed to by an importance too with pinstripe detail on separates and faded check on coats and jumpers in co-ordinance to the winter season.

The wide detachable collar was a noted accessory and when placed over garments such as suiting and coats in bright pops of red and cobalt, it gave an element of dandy and playfulness not usually captured in a Jil Sander collection. However, this playfulness was an invitation to the modern man and it was accepted whole-heartedly.
