Fall 2017 Ready-to-Wear
February 25, 2017
Clean, cool, and streamlined—this is the essence of Jil Sander under Rodolfo Paglialunga, and Fall 2017 did not disappoint.
Here, we saw the same arced shoulders and slick, oversized proportions as we did for Spring, only this time in heavier fabrics and rich hues including rust, earth tones, deep blue, and burgundy.
“I wanted to carry on with the summer collection, and I need to carry on also with the volume,” Paglialunga said backstage. “We try to do things that are wearable, modern, and timeless. I want to make a point about a classical wardrobe, but renovate with colors and materials as well.”
The suiting stood out this season, and was shown in boxy silhouettes, as well as with nipped waists and voluminous arms. A leather style with roomy, cropped pants was particularly strong.
Same goes for the outerwear—wide lapels, extra-long sleeves, and sharp shapes gave a distinct ’90s vibe.
Towards the end of the show, we were given some serious shimmer, but the cuts of these dresses and separates were still relaxed and simple—everything a minimalist like the Jil Sander woman wants for evening.
