Milan-based label Jil Sander revealed its Spring/Summer 2019 collection at Paris Fashion Week, with creative directors Lucie and Luke Meier building on the label’s reputation for minimalist luxury. This season saw the husband-and-wife duo give classic items subtle twists, as they merged traditional ideas of tailoring and uniform with more progressive cuts and textures. This includes suits with kilts, shorter-cut jackets and trousers and extended shirts, while polyester is mixed with wool and natural fabrics are kept un-dyed.
Despite its muted color palette, the collection features pops of color in the form of photographic images printed on white poplin shirts and eye-catching oversized knitwear pieces. Another key motif is the use of lines and grids alongside natural finishings and garment dyed details, which intended to provide a “human touch within the functional world of the uniform.” Similarly to themes from the label’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection, these features are used as references to something familiar.
