"Airy", graphic, and quite "pure" Jil.

The coats are beautiful
kind of a let down for me...i like spring much better. i'm sure it's hard to see the quality and cut on the runway, but it didn't bring me to my knees...
this is my fave look-
No prints like everywhere. Just a little mix of fabrics on jacket, or a small pleatting on shirts or skirts, or a little more boxy silhouette. I think I like it.
This dress reminds me of a JS's dress very very long time ago
ngth-that's my second fave piece...
did Milan Vukmirovic design this collection?
Jil is back!!!
Wonder what happened to poor milan
I actually loved it, i think it looks really refreshing and still very relevant
i dont know yet whether to like it or hate it
this dress is the most beautiful thing i've seen all season...
Sander is sculptural; Fendi is apologetic about fur
Suzy Menkes IHT
Modern fashion has been lacking a firm silhouette, but Jil Sander knocked it back into shape on Thursday with a new flexible geometry. From the two-tone black and white shoes to dresses with arcs of seaming, the designer pushed forward - but only a little - with her vision of simplicity.
Her show on Thursday was one of the few for the Milan 2004 winter season to be cut out of cloth - instead of the leathers, knits and especially furs that are dominating the runways. "It is very feminine, but with a strong hand and beautiful textures," Sander said, referring to a coat where white mat canvas met shiny black, or the subtle mix of a dust-dry silver lurex sweater with a shiny silver pleated skirt.
Backstage, the designer demonstrated the feel of felt cashmere between the fingers and showed the ridges of piping in sculptured dresses. They came in Papal purple and fuchsia pink as a shot of color among the black and white tailored coats or one in quiet herringbone tweed that was so angled with seaming that it looked like it could stand up on its own. Sander, the keeper of the flame of realist fashion, also said that she wanted a collection of genuine clothes.
The show could have done with a jolt of surprise - or some way to comprehend the subtle detail of a brilliant white shirt cuff and how skirts with volume at the back were actually constructed. But Sander, who left her house for two years, before last season's comeback, is finding her fashion feet. And the fact that this season they included purple wedge-heeled shoes shows how open she is still experimenting.
i'm sorry i just LOVE this thing
Thanks for the article, Nikos (and the dress too)
I think this collection is nice,
simple but with interesting details and ideas.
some one has been looking at Junya watanabe collection havent they?
Its still nice, im not totally crazy for it, soem really cool dresses though.
Milan went back to Colette,I think. And I think I remember hearing he was thinking of starting his own collection.
As for this,truly stunning,cerebral and romantic. I love the delicacy in the detail work with all the pleating(love pleats,so one will always win me over ).
Space,it reminds me more of Branquinho somehow
I adore the pairing of the pure white dress and black tights! Wonderful!
