The off-duty update:
The bomber jacket has graduated from high-school jock uniform to an essential spring wardrobe update. In metallic silver or contrasting colors, it’s the perfect partner for this season’s ladylike pencil skirts.
WHO? The mistress of minimalism – all eyes were on Jil Sander’s return to her label after eight years.
WHY NOW? A new designer at the helm is always exciting, even if it’s an old new designer. Sander didn’t disappoint with her complex simplicity, offering fresh, modern and intellectual pieces.
THE DESIGNER’S TAKE?
“Understatement is the order of the day,” says Sander of her return. The message, like the collection, is simple: Jil is back.
