The first images of Jil Sander Navy, a lower-priced line from the master of minimalism, were released yesterday to the press. Surprisingly void of the quintessential dark blue hue for which Sander has always been known, the clothes were full of pinks, greens, turquoises, and a few neutrals. The capsule collection may be shades brighter than its runway counterpart, but the silhouettes, construction, and overall aesthetic are definitely Jil. Boxy dresses, classic trenches, and minimal shirt-dresses are made from cotton voile, micro twill, and techno gabardine, which go perfectly with the oxfords and sandals made in canvas from Sander’s mainline. The line’s release has been pushed back until S/S 11 and is less expensive than initially predicted — shirts will retail for $125 and prices will cap at $1,000 for outerwear.
