Not part of movement that we've seen this fall, Jil Sander Collection was in the league of it's own. First-half was a homage to Jil Sander and the past with direct aesthetic vision,wondrously straight forward and profoundly portable. The febuleux lines cut,construction and tailoring was unreal. The later was conceptual. Separating this show into two parts- clothes and concept.Moving cohesively,Simons tok the entire whole collection forward by introducing sublime geometry,striking from my visual perspective.
Casting was indifferent this season as compared to the past shows and this time not doing justice to some garments. The 'conceptual garment' did not take form on the model's thin frame. Shapely model would be best to ameliorate the three dimensional form around the body.
