There’s something that resonates with me nowadays when it comes to Jil Sander. Probably it’s the simple, yet powerful collections, nice fabrics and interesting, but not over forced colours. Like this one, which is based on the ’80s with the shoulder pads, V dresses, suits and high vamp shoes. Eighties are back (too), but luckily it’s not gimmicky or kitschy at all. She cleverly brought all the strong elements back, and made it more minimalist, more Jil Sander-y.
A few years ago, the return of such an ugly dress like this V-shaped one, seemed impossible. After all, which woman wants man-like broad shoulders and no waist definition? (And btw is it a thing which women or men want more?) And yet, here we are. I won’t say it’s a big hit, but you never know who is gonna like it based on simple nostalgia or a political message, like I’m a woman, yet I work like a man, because we’re equal. No matter what.
On a final side note: as a woman, I love bags. Men usually don’t get it, but I like to use cars as a comparison. Yes, a cheap bag knows more or less the same like a designer one, like carrying my stuff in it. On the the other hand, a simple Skoda knows how to take you from A to B like a Ferrari/Maserati/BMW does, the difference is the functionality, quality, and how you feel for it. For the base purpose a Skoda would be fine too. No offence guys, it’s just an observation.
Anyway, I wouldn’t mind to try one or two of these bags on. The extra wide strap looks really yummy. 🙂
