Elegance, on a bold note. A sense of strictness and ease. Reaffirming and expanding the reductionist codes of the house, Rodolfo Paglialunga focuses on the silhouette, creating a twisted vision of timeless classics.The line starts from the strong power of the marked shoulders and flows graciously. Assertive volumes create a breath between clothing and body. The interplay between rounded and angular defines the tone. The pillars are reshuffled: the blazer, the mannish shirt, the midi dress, the bermuda shorts, the leather blouson. Unexpected slits give movement. The archetypes of glamorous femininity are streamlined for the now. Sensual draping turns into trompe-l’oeil motifs. A sense of graphic rhythm: tailored pinstripes, pleating on floaty dresses and tops, ribbing on knits. Wool fresco, heavy linen, shirting cotton, satin. A classic palette of cream, black, pale grey with accents of peach, pumpkin and metallic flashes of silver and copper. Pumps with ankle straps, flat slippers, sculptural bags. Sporadically, opulent earrings. A bold vision of classicism.
Jil Sander is a fashion house founded by Jil Sander in 1968. Its minimalist trademarks include striking silhouettes, high-end fabrics, and meticulous detail, emphasizing quality over flash. In the years after 1978 she revolutionized the industry by marketing her first perfume with a campaign that prominently featured her own face. Her trademark look, a somewhat New Look for women conquering executive positions in the 1980s, was that of a perfectly cut pantsuit, a form-fitting simple but elegant coat or a slim blouse made of the most luxurious materials in plain grey, black, blue or white leaving out any unnecessary details, extravagant ornaments or loud colors.
