Here’s the fashion presentation of Jil Sander Menswear Spring/Summer 2020 Paris.
Minimalism applied to an ethereal and elegant conception of sartorial practice: this is how Jil Sander surprises by taking the simple to another level with his collection in Paris, making black and white the pillars of a proposal that evolves towards prints Floral and color blocks.
Luke said fluid tailoring remains the way forward for the brand, which has long been synonymous with pared-back shapes and fine details. Lucie added that the collection’s value lies in its subtlety, its “poetry and detail,” and its lightweight fabrics.
The couple have been turning their hands and minds to sustainability, too, working materials such as organic banana fiber into pieces such as the black-and-white trenchcoat that appeared in the show. Lucie said the fiber is a dream because it behaves like gazar, but it’s lighter and offers structure without the stiffness.
All of that fabric research meant that even the simplest of pieces sang — the boxy khaki workwear suits, the navy overcoats and those oversized, billowy white cotton shirts, fit for long strolls under the sun.
