Jil Sander.


Spring/Summer 2014

With such a seamless transition from designer Raf Simons to Sander returning customers probably cannot pinpoint exactly when this happened. Now with her feet firmly back under the table, she presented her third collection.

The brand is known for it’s simply stylish silhouettes this collection did not disappoint.  We first saw cropped boyish trousers, low slung, belted and partnered with crisp jackets with no fastenings. “I especially loved that trouser shape that she repeated. I’m obsessed with that length,” said Ruth Chapman of Matchesfashion.com, continuing, “that sort of slouchy, sexy shape that we have seen a lot of this season. I loved this collection as a whole, it felt inherently feminine which feels new for Sander.” Interesting hemlines with curves on flared skirts and raffia coats. Clever darts, folds, cut-outs and tucks at play make the garments intellectual rather than basic. A small splattering of abstract print appeared on bermuda shorts and dress. Backstage the designers said, “Women are always running, always on the go, I wanted to present something that felt airy and effortless,”.
