Milan Fashion Week: Jil Sander Autumn/Winter 14
Simplicity is the key to perfection
Despite Jil Sander's departure from the label she created for the third time in her career history, the Jil Sander design team powered on and presented a strong AW14 womenswear collection which reflected the brand's minimalistic style - a defining feature it has become renowned for.
According to the show notes, the Jil Sander design team aimed to portray "the fundamental codes of the Jil Sander label, reinforcing the emblems of the house." Simple silhouettes were brought to life with hues of emerald, pink, peach, sage, blue and black. With no over the top design features, attention was instead focused on detail, such as fabric folds and floral motifs embellished into fabric. The brand's footwear consisted of chunky laceup shoes or wedge boots fashioned in hues of black, brown, green and yellow.
