Epic masculinity, the quest of Jil Sander. Dignity and curiosity, gravitas and intelligence; gentleness. Presence of mind and soul, spirited and composed.
Elongated silhouette; volume, generous, but controlled. Prominent head, carved shoulders, cascading proportions. Trompe l’oeil details.
Heavy felt redingote, raised waist, lapel, button line. Varnished, weather resistant felt coat, deconstructed. Spongy thermo corduroy.
String theory: Bold or drizzling pinstripe suits. Needle punch palimpsests of chequers and stripes. 3-d-plackets, mobile slashes. Light reflecting piping.
Fitted shirts, French collar, contrasting plastron. Flannel harness. Bi-color cashmere knit, leather insert turtle neck. Tubular, ankle-length pants, superstraight, sculptural. Handmade boots, big stitching, calfskin leather. Jil Sander tints plus pine, cobalt, juicy Kirghiz red. Puzzling monochromatics.
