It was interesting to see Jil Sander’s take on the ideas and trends that have been popping up all week. Things like bra tops, cropped pants, dresses with pockets, slits, sporty separates and flat shoes were all there, done the Jil Sander way, which is to say: modern, minimalist, and pure. It all made for a collection that felt fresh and easy.
But not boring. Unexpected details kept things interesting and, sometimes, even sexy. Crop tops had surprisingly daring slits at the bottom; dresses revealed a healthy amount of side boob or had deep, wide necklines. Some were cut in a way that the bodice was essentially just two panels barely covering the breasts–it looked weightless and effortless, if a little risky.
On the more demure end there were great sculptural pinafores and jackets, often paired with classic-looking longish shorts for a crisp look.
Sander spiced up the mostly black and white collection with a few painterly, abstract, camo-esque prints; and at the end she did one of the aforementioned risqué dresses in luxurious black and white feathers, which she still managed to make look as fresh and effortless as the rest of the collection.
