An expression of contrasting silhouettes, shapes and colors.

At Jil Sander’s Spring/Summer 2020 runway show at Paris Fashion Week, the ancient principle that opposites attract was in full effect. Husband and wife creative director duo Luke and Lucie Meier employed contrasting aesthetics from the apparel pieces to the accessories, maintaining the overall tailored and elevated sensibility that the brand has consistently stood for.

Elongated silhouettes were dominant throughout outerwear and tops, with extended lengths applied to items such as trench coats made of organic banana fiber, hand-crocheted sweaters with floor-sweeping fringes and v-neck shirts crafted in Japanese cotton. Bottoms, on the other hand, skewed cropped and precisely cut, though a selection of more loose-fitting pants offered an alternative look. Even the color palette was a subtle foray into the theme of opposing ideas, as the primarily neutral palette of cream, white, navy and black was sporadically undercut by rich shades of Klein blue and burgundy.

Stripes and the occasional botanical print brought patterns to the mix, sprucing up sleeveless knit tops and lounge-worthy matching sets. Remembering the Jil Sander man’s knack for travel, the label thoughtfully presented the bags in a range of shapes: sturdy and boxy, flat and pliable and the conventional tote-style. Meanwhile, footwear finished off the outfits with more breadth, spanning soft Nappa leather moccasins to heavy-duty sandals and boots for variety.
