After I recently inherited boyfr’s sleek, ¾ sleeve Jil Sander shirt I started to get interested in the minimalist design of the formerly German company again. I used to love it when the “Queen of Less” herself was still on board. After Jil Sander left over confrontations with the new owner, the Prada Group, in 1999 and the confusion about who would become the next creative director started, I didn’t really bother anymore. But when I look at some of the really basic key pieces of the current ready-to-wear collection they sell at their online store I can feel a little of that old Jil Sander vibe again.
