With the power-dressing craze gripping Milan, the Jil Sander show offered a soothing reprieve. In a venue reminiscent of an artist’s atelier, with plush curtains and replicas of ancient Greek statues scattered at the center, Lucie and Luke Meier explored a gentler kind of dressing based on their unique interpretation of tailoring and femininity.

Gorpcore—the trend of sporting technically-minded outdoor apparel as everyday wear, no campsites required—has made it to the big leagues. And it's not just on TV—now one of its leading brands is officially entering into the high-fashion fold.
Every piece of Jil Sander clothing is streamlined and expertly crafted, so it’s no surprise that the brand’s new Manhattan pop-up shop is the same. However, instead of the company’s signature neutrals, the retail space is swathed in a fluorescent yellow (our bets are on Babouche by Farrow & Ball), meant to unify each display. The everywhere shade is just one design idea we’re stealing from the store.
An energetic tension between opposites defined the overall concept behind Jil Sander’s spring 2022 collection, which marked the brand’s return to physical shows. The show was held in a sort of tunnel-like indoor space, long and narrow, that was covered with lilac carpeting and illuminated with a delicate light in the same palette. The vibe felt cocooning and relaxing.

In an unusually trendless year, outdoor apparel was one of the few genuine movements to emerge over the course of 2020. So-called GORPcore moved beyond its crunchy niche and into the collections of Gucci and Prada, while Patagonia and the North Face earned full-fledged fashion credentials. But outdoor vibes have always been a part of Jil Sander+, the diffusion line launched by creative directors Luke and Lucie Meier in 2019 to complement their monastically pure mainline with clothing designed for life outside the city.

Silhouettes have been reduced down to their most simple forms for easy, elegant dressing. "The overall idea is sophistication,” Sander said in her collection notes. “A kind of purity that lets us think of regeneration and a fresh start.”
By now, most of us have quenched our thirsts for loungewear. A return to a life lived outside our homes means we’re now musing as to how we will dress after what’s become a tumultuous, sweatpant-saturated year. We’re ready to dress up again, but what, exactly, does that look like? To us, it looks a lot like Uniqlo’s +J SS21 collection—the latest in the ongoing collaboration between designer Jil Sander and Uniqlo. In the new collection (which launches today), Sander delivers us the picture of modern fashion. Sander’s unrivaled minimalism paired with Uniqlo’s universal appeal means that garments are as sleek as they are wearable—the ideal combination for life in the upcoming months.
