Jil Sander’s dress code for autumn 2016 seem to underline exactly what we love so much about the brand: practicality, sophistication, precision, quality, detail and perfect execution. Designer Rodolfo Paglialunga, at the helm since 2014, understands these highly appreciated values like no other and presented us the image of a strong and powerful woman right there on a platter. If we talk about stylish authority, sign here please. We saw strong-shouldered coats, robust shaped jackets, slightly oversized suits with perfectly cut deep v-necks, below the knees hems, one-shoulder tops and asymmetry dresses that twisted and folded around the body. And who wouldn’t want to try the high-neck white midi dress? The military and androgynous references definitely showed throughout a big part of the collection. But between the ultra clean designs look 3 already showed us a hint of what was more to come: luminous and shiny materials. Spice up the office gear with some rose gold metallic, shimmery knits paired to mesh and glossy or metallic leather. Or opt for a furry sweater or dress to match with your turtle neck. It was a welcoming touch of modern elegance to such essential, minimal language. The collection had a trusted and familiair rhythm to it, us marking some favourites that could definitely make it into our wardrobe, but it won’t be the most memorable show we’ve seen.

Jil Sander, once again without Jil, proved to maintain it’s strong minimalistic DNA. Clean, pale colored (gray, blue, sage, pink and peach) looks followed each other on a crispy white runway. First a line-up of strong gray woolen coats paired with pleated pants. Then came the sleeveless dresses with folded details. There were boxy suits and high wasted A-line skirts with cashmere turtleneck jumpers. A lime green snake skin bag, colorful brogue shoes and a few sparkly touches at the end briefly interrupted the overall minimal vibe of the collection. According to the show notes the team was trying to portray “the fundamental codes of the Jil Sander label, reinforcing the emblems of the house.” And so they did.
