German born designer Jil Sander is one of the original innovators in minimalism with her clean aesthetic and understated designs that still resonate in the label today. The Jil Sander brand was born in 1973 offering luxury and structured pieces with a sense of purity that offered an alternative to the favoured fashion of the time. Today the label continues to lead the way with androgynous, sleek and superior collections and stand out pieces. Pre-SS15 Jil Sander captures the energy of movement in this strong yet delicate collection. Taking strong undertones from the house's clean and androgynous aesthetic, the clothes are weightless and shapes are loose yet precise. Pieces are knotted, frilled, sculpted and move freely around the silhouette. Coats double as dresses, a shirt as a jacket and there are contrasting leather accessories and small clutch bags in dense hues. Key prints are inspired by the work of artist Raymond Hains, adding further movement to surfaces. The colour palette is chalky, a nod to Thomas Schutte in black, cream, peach, rust and tobacco.
