^^^If you don't find Jil's designs interesting, then I don't think you need to be convinced otherwise. It's just fashion.
I enjoy the straightforwardness of Jil's approach to design; she's never injected gimmicks, novelties or a theme to her collections, nor her shows. I appreciate that about her. Not that I don't enjoy a great spectacle, or a strong concept, I just appreciate Jil's no-sense, strictly-utilitarian approach to presenting her brand and her vision of modern fashion as unfussy, uncluttered and spare. I love her rejection of anything nostalgic, or referential. Her cuts are beautiful, wearable and thoughtful. I noticed a dominating matronly-feel to his collection with the volume and modesty-- but in the same garment, there are also strict, fitted and sensual lines. It's a subtle fusing. I enjoy that restraint and discipline about Jil. She doesn't need to cut a huge exaggerated silhouette to make a statement.
(As a side note, as much as Muiccia is one of the outstanding designers working presently, her latest collection with the flower as a symbol and concept for her collection is a huge turn-off for me; it's all so Art School-thesis and pretentious.).
