Milan Fashion Week: Jil Sander

In an industry that moves on at a rate of knots, Jil Sander’s glacial pace offers an oasis of calm to the fashion world-weary viewer.

The designer’s slowly slowly catchy monkey approach is in contrast (literally) to how quickly (in Jil Sander the brand terms) her predecessor Raf Simons shifted from one theme to the next, so it is in the smallest details that evolution is found. For autumn 13, Sander’s development came with the introduction of furs and hairs, giving a degree of texture to usually clean outerwear, and licks of gold, lending a sense of luxury to the mannish, puritanical, rounded shoulder silhouettes.

In short Sander disturbed her masculine purity with texture and colour pops which will please, if not elate, her fans.
