s/s 2008 milan: jil sander.

collections Uncategorized

i’ll admit i’m not much of a jil sander fan. even though it’s always had a minimalist slant, it was a little too much so for my tastes…calvin klein and helmut lang had that something extra that sander didn’t seem to. i’ve been taking notice of the collection since raf simons has been on board, and this spring collection is the most interesting to date.

the looks included sander’s signature suit, this time with either a cute cropped bolero style jacket or a longer less rigid hip length jacket, both worn with skinny pants, flowy palazzo pants, t-shirt minidresses, semisheer blouses, loose chiffon “trenches,” and gorgeous draped dresses with floaty backs. Navy, white, black were punched up with shots of pink, peach, orange, and magenta.

my favorite pieces were the laser cut, layered chiffon dresses and tops, some monochromatic, and others different complementary colors. all gorgeous and fresh. a collection i can’t wait to see come spring. too bad the jil sander store is becoming a helmut lang.
