In the first fall collection after the minimalist maven’s return to her eponymous label, Jil Sander complemented the winter cold with a icy palette of shadowy blues, forest greens, and slate grays. These colors were mixed and matched into pattern after pattern, arranged into various plaids, pinstripes, and windowpanes, and draped over Sander’s trademark streamlined yet relaxed silhouettes. It’s a look that is at once cold-weather and pristinely cool: perfect for looking a step apart from the somber flock, on overcast days to come.
The Vibe for Fall 2012: Raf Simons must have swallowed the red pill based on the procession of Agent Smith clones at Jil Sander this season. Supple leather outerwear draped over precision-cut tailored pieces, all blacked-out save for the contrasting pop of white shirts (and a pair of animal-embroidered jumpers). Consider this Neo-minimalism. See the full Jil Sander Fall 2012 men’s collection from Milan right now at GQ.com.
