Milan Fashion Week, Fall 2008: Jil Sander
Get a load of Raf Simmons' funnel necks for Jil Sander. I absolutely love the crispness and the incognito effect they have. It makes me want to flip up the collars of all my coats and jackets for the rest of my life.
Aside from the Fab collar work, Jil Sander remains to be one of the most cool and collected of the fashion pack. Here, the use of heavy tweeds and tucked wools is super strong. Surprisingly, nuances like asymmetry and origami folds work well with the streamlined Sander aesthetic. The color palette may be subdued — black, navy and grey — but better to let the tailoring shine. There are also quite a few perfect everyday dresses, ready to be gussied up with statement jewelry.
