Jil Sander

Pure - not minimalist - would have been the perfect word to describe fashion brand Jil Sander. Conceived as a niche luxury house with a well-honed singular vision by its founder in 1968, the German label applies a consistent, almost Mies-ian approach, to fashion: The clothes may look deceptively simple and utilitarian, but upon closer inspection, each piece reveals master craftsmanship with a monastic rigour to detail. The brand is currently designed by Luke and Lucie Meier.
