PERFECT SIMPLICITY
New York: The end of Uniqlo’s partnership with Jil Sander just over a year ago left a void in the marketplace for affordable, well-tailored wardrobe classics. Now, with Jil Sander back at the helm of her namesake lines, Navy is the label to watch for accessible minimalism. One perfectly made suit with boyish straight-legged pants and a jacket coquettishly jutting out in the back picked up right where the Uniqlo collection left off. To fill out the rest of the closet, there were cropped pleat-front trousers, refined Oxford button-ups and several must-have coats, from collarless trenches to boxy shearlings. Pleated skirts that fell to the knee and varsity-style cardigans matched Navy’s boy with his girl. The collection came in an eye-pleasing palette of sharp black and navy, utilitarian neutrals and muted pastels – again, just perfect.Nivara Xaykao
