Initial reaction:

Strictly minimal Jil Sander Navy lets a little light in, in the form of cheeky school uniform cuts, blown up prints, and emergency orange jackets.

Back to school:

Thick soled two-tone brogue slip-ons (like the heeled Kickers you were never allowed from Clarks), worn with flared, pleated skirts and neat buttoned up white shirts worn under regulation check pinafores.

Prints:

An outsized check in royal blue and black, and op-art fine herringbone on a knit, and the – unusual for Jil Sander – free-spirited grey tie-dye on a pair of trousers.

Unexpected pairing:

City-black Bermuda shorts worn under a purple wool coat with fur collar, with lace up punk boots on the feet.

Scuba finish:

A cropped orange jacket had the soft rounded silhouette of neoprene, providing the necessary crisp finish for a label built on minimalist codes.
