Clinical and controlled; stepping into her stride and embarking on new textural territory.
Italian conceptual artist Alighiero Boetti, energy fields and random access memory moments.
Stand out looks:
The painterly prints combining expressionist brushstrokes and a camouflage effect, a pearlescent shift dress and a black satin jacket with the open vents.
Feathers in a Jil Sander show. Harnessed under restraint, of course.
Sparse and strategically placed - a structured bag with PVC panels mirroring the painterly prints, three-fold leather clutches and wooden sculpted wedges.
Most likely to:
Appease diehard Sander fans with her boxy tailoring and subtle nods to deconstruction.
Least likely to:
Stand in a uniform line - this was Jil Sander being playful with a random assemblage of different silhouettes.
Precise and finessed - the models walked through perspex panels placed like architectural interventions around the catwalk.
Ambient techno build up composed by Frederic Sanchez.
Quote of the show:
Jil Sander's kind of poetry.
Through the looking-glass, back to the material world
Declaration of purity, moving, gazing, craving transcendence
Breezy freshness, airy suspension, joyful serenity
Cybernetic curves and proportions
