True that Jil Sander’s Pre-Fall collection came a little late, regarding Couture and Copenhagen fashion week already ended, but whatever, I always say it’s better later than never, and I don’t think that otherwise this time either.
Minimal clothing is not dead, for sure. Maybe maximalism has been taking space in the last couple of seasons, there is always a few designers who won’t give in. Like Jil Sander, whose last S/S collection I loved so much.
Even though I don’t think this collection is so characteristic, I accept it’s a reasonable explanation when it comes to either fall/winter or mid season collections. These pieces are not so eye catching and way closer to the basic, but it’s nice enough to speak or at least know about it.
When I see the all black outfits, I especially like the very conscious tailoring which seems professional and perfectly low-key at the same time. And of course I love all the non black pieces, such as the clay brown suit and the burgundy dress, along with the pointy toe sock boots. Actually I think the boots are the main reason why I got sold on this collection.
Minimalism or maximalism?

PS: Prepare your eyeballs and mind for Ready-To-Wear (RTW) fashion week, it’s going to be huge, I tell ya’! 🙂 Especially after this minimal show…
