JIL SANDER FW22 - Elegance, Minimalism and eccentricity

Creative directors Lucie and Luke Meier chose Fall Winter 2022 as the season to showcase and uplift their definition of elegance through a womenswear collection built around a genre of tailoring that is reminiscent of couture with a minimalist energy. The collection included a lineup of wool skirt suits, with jackets sculpted like hourglasses; and dresses and coats with a similar silhouette. Each piece throughout the collection gave an indirect nod to the 60's, whether it was a full look or separates. The palette of the collection was a range of black, beige and soft pastel colours that championed sophistication in a very subtle yet effective way. The menswear collection also sang a similar tune as the duo opted to continue their exploration of elegance but with a very sensual touch. The collection was built with a foundation of classic tailoring while inhabiting some traditional feminine techniques . Although elegance reigned supreme with perfectly proportioned suits and beautifully clean cut coats , there were also touches of eccentricity that contributed to the narrative, like macrame sweaters and silk suits.
