Having been with the house for one year, the freshly titled creative director, Rodolfo Paglialunga understands precisely what the Jil Sander woman is looking for: minimalist ready-to-wear with a creative interpretation. And so, sticking to the house codes, Paglialunga showcased his Spring/Summer 16 collection for Jil Sander at Milan Fashion Week.
Crafted from supple silk, soft shirting and a lightweight ribbed knit, more than just the colour palette kept the collection light and airy, starting and ending on a white note. Paglialunga's knack for taking the classic and turning it creative quietly lent a modern spin on blazers as the designer cut away slits at the shoulders and carried the same theme through the waists of dresses.
The brightest of the bunch, a red leather coat stood out amongst the collection in a rather boxy silhouette that still felt feminine and romantic due to the nature of the thin fabric.
Details subtly appeared throughout the collection in the form of slashed sleeves and skirts and dresses tied off into knots, whilst prints – though minor in scale – added interest to darker looks in the collection lending a graphic element to the masculine silhouettes.
