The brand of Jil Sander has in earlier times been one of refinement, heritage and traditional menswear. Known for clean lines and luxury tailoring, the German fashion house has garnered a specific audience but with the rise streetwear, Creative Directors husband-and-wife duo Luke and Lucie Meier are looking to youthful modernisation.
Taking to Paris Fashion Week, it was the Paris’ Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild that provided the backdrop for the Fall/Winter 2019 presentation, another career milestone for the Meier’s who saw their appointment in April 2017. And so a new era of the brand continued.
With familiar motifs of sharply tailored outerwear and kit essentials, the new collection provided a more layered approach to the season with an infusion of progressive design. Among mainly monochromatic looks and tonal bursts, FW19 was seen to be much more casual than past collections with oversized silhouettes, boiler suit variations and utilitarian garments, all of which were paired with a chunky rendition of the classic combat boot. Sheer knits also made an appearance, as well as full calf skin looks and billowing capes which elevated the overall collection.
Rounding out each of the looks was a boyish touch of bucket hats, bum bags, and previously mentioned chunky sneakers, while the use of wool, quality cotton and leather provided the synonymous touch of luxury Jil Sander is famous for.
