Milan Fashion Week: Jil Sander Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear show review

Fashion

After three collections by the creative duo of Luke and Lucie Meier since joining fashion house Jil Sander as co-creative directors, we can say for sure that the minimalism, set by the brand’s creator from day one as a signature aesthetic, continues to be so.

However, the overall simplicity develops into the details of the Jil Sander Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear collection: asymmetrical silhouettes, mind games with an interpretation of a uniform to combine elements of the military, sport and the art studio, raincoat shirts, sweaters with a sewed-on piece containing an ornament which implies nude figures.

In Lucie and Luke’s version, minimalism ceases to be boring, and instead acquires monochrome shades of urban futurism, inspired by nature itself and by Alan Weisman’s book "The World Without Us."
