Jil Sander Fall 2013
Jil Sander has dusted off herself and is back. She has reversed the aging process and has gone back to doing what she does best. The collection, presented on a runway set with a metallic geometric sculpture, installed into the floor, was indeed all about shape.
Miss Sander, an uber modernist, presented coats and jackets, nipped at the waist and below the bust. Hemlines fell dramatically to just below the knees. Trousers were slim and reached the ankle. Colors were predominantly black with blues, greys, oranges, yellow, eggplant, and a hint of metallic gold foil attached just right where its needed most.
Fabrics were wool, cashmere, leather, pony hair and fur. Miss Sander gave her models a solid footing to maneuver the catwalk. It’s probably because the future seems uncertain and one needs just the right accouterment to get ahead. But, of course, it seems that Miss Sander possesses that Je Ne Sais Quoi to keep the Jil Sander woman coming back for more.
