Jil Sander Navy Autumn/Winter 17 Collection tells the story of a young Parisienne traveling to Venice during the Baroque era. Curled up in voluminous coats and wide skirts, she moves freely through urban environments with her feminine allure.
The versatile and modern silhouettes, such as ample trousers and oversized coats, are paired with soft shirts with puff shoulders. Sumptuous dresses made with rich yet light fabrics and draped skirts offer a hint to the fashion of 17th Century Venice.
The color palette, which includes dark blue tones, grey, brick-red and purple hues, alludes to French photographer, Sarah Moon’s work, Serge Lutens’s iconic shots from the 60s and Georges Lacombe’s intense paintings, surrounding the Jil Sander Navy woman of the season with an unmistakable air of mystery.
