JIL SANDER: MILAN FASHION WEEK S/S 2015, BACKSTAGE GIRLS
See backstage pictures from Jil Sander’s spring/summer 2015 show.
There was an element of discipline to Jil Sander’s backstage line up this season. There always is for brands that are concerned with the minimalist side of things, but the approach felt more about uniform for S/S 15. Little cornflower blue shirts were fully fastened beneath the majority of exits, and teamed with leather socks throughout there might have been an element of kink to proceedings, were it not for the fact that the Jil woman seems far too modern to care about the old-fashioned fetishising of such a thing. FYI she enjoys being subtly unusual, but not outright strange. It’s all about standing out from the crowd in a way that’s just so, as with a swish of the girls perfectly kept manes, which revealed single golden earrings as they issued onto the runway. Amazing.
