Jil Sander AW15

Elegant slackers in baggy trousers and clinical rubber boots walk the runway for Rodolfo Paglialunga’s menswear debut

Initial reaction:

Precision-cut elegance with a slacker sensibility, served up by the brand’s new creative director Rodolfo Paglialunga – who has previously clocked up time at Prada, Romeo Gigli and Vionnet – for his first menswear outing. 

Crank up the volume:

Paglialunga gave the Jil boy some room to breathe with oversize coats and baggy trousers held in place by waist-defining belts. This was youthful volume done with elegance and a tailored nonchalance, where slouchy 50s-via-70s waffle knits were tucked neatly into trousers that fell in almost tracksuit bottom-like puddles.


There was something ever so slightly sick and fetishistic about the thick-soled rubber boots, which came in colours including clinical hospital white and Hazmat orange. This season’s footwear added an odd allure to the baggy yet streamlined tailoring.
