Jil Sander Spring 13

Jil Sander's first womenswear collection since her return to her namesake house. Sander herself referred to the collection as reduction rather than minimalism. 

The first third to half of the show was my favourite (the end skewed more to a mod-ishk, retrofuturistic thing). Maroons paired with white is one of my favourite colour combinations - both warm and crisp. And it worked especially well here. Also when joined by a vibrant red. Sander also paired white with the perfect shade of cream in a look featuring a beautiful sleevless coat. Pocket shapes were really cool, elongated and oversized patch pockets with elevated flaps - creating a structured hip shape on many of the dresses. I also loved the boxy leather bags - and the elegant gesture of holding them.
