Jil Sander Fall/Winter 2000 - Spring/Summer 2014
The image of Jil Sander has always been linked with the concept of minimalism. Once reviewing fourteen years, the aesthetics do not appear so radically restraint. Complicated colour and vibrant pattern has always been a Sander trademark - an intellectual subtlety that, ad interim, had been replaced by Simons' partly risky conceptualism. Eventually, it was Simons who revived the brand's true essence and character of what everyone primarily perceived to symbolize Jil Sander. Today, for the third time, Jil Sander leaves the house she gave birth to. Most probably, this step was not a decision of simplicity but necessity - a Sander imperative.
