Utterly fearless for fall

Jil Sander describes its fall winter 2021 collection as “fearless.”

Unveiled virtually at February’s pandemic impacted New York Fashion Week, Sander’s press materials explained, “This collection is an ode to individuality, freedom and change. It is mirror of the sense of self reflection and intimacy we are enjoying, even if it forced upon us, and the desire we have for the company of others. Our sensation of being multiple, manifold, of swinging between diverging needs and pleasures, of wanting to be everything we feel, giving space to our many selves, is intense, revealing, and eventually empowering.”

In the press package, the brand explained, “Ornamentation, prints, patterns and colors are present and strong. The palette is natural and exceptionally light for winter: butter, cream, powder, mauve, lilac, raspberry, cardamon, burnt sienna, black, different shades of yellow and blue.”

“Layering finds its juxtaposition, its balance, in the simplicity of lingerie-inspired lace dresses; in knitted bodysuits donned with A-line skirts; in voluminous or fitted dresses. All worn with supple nappa leather boots, a boxy handbag, or two different rectangular tote bags, one thin, the other with a bellowing folded side,” said the press release.

Emphasizing separates this season, Jil Sanders’ press materials explained that designers, “Lucie and Luke Meier remind us that playing with clothes, recombining them, is uplifting. Light-hearted and meaningful at the same time.”
