Jil Sander A/W 2016
Mood board: Sober suiting sat at the heart of the Jil Sander collection where creative director Rodolfo Paglialunga played with classic two piece dressing in oversized silhouettes. Mixed in with the flared and boxy shapes was crinkled men's shirting that wrapped around the models like a secure bandage.
Best in show: On the minimal side of the fashion equation, there was a great funnel necked cream felt wool skirt and top that oozed simple luxury. Then things got more interesting with shaggy Lurex knits on sweater and pencil skirt sets and silver Lurex stitching which zigged and zagged across deep black wool canvases.
Finishing touches: Curved cone heels on sturdy pointed two pumps with extra high vamps created an architectural finish to these pure, sleek looks.
