“Noted as one of the major labels who helped popularize the minimalist aesthetic of the nineties, Jil Sander stands for luxe purity… The austere suits and coats, embellishment-free cashmere knits, and monochrome silk dresses in whites, browns, and blacks earned a cult following among critics and buyers alike… Buyers from prestigious department stores like Barneys New York have said it’s one of the labels that their clients most consistently seek.” Excerpts taken from: http://nymag.com/fashion/fashionshows/designers/bios/jilsander/#ixzz0YIeCWLTT
“The designer label Jil Sander is known for its emphasis on luxurious fabrics and garments that appear deceptively simple. Designer Raf Simons has garnered critical acclaim for pushing the brand’s austere, minimalist heritage further with smart but understated suits that make stylish executives swoon.” Excerpts taken from: http://blogs.wsj.com/runway/2009/03/02/jil-sander-a-collection-to-make-models-weep/
This is an absolutely exquisite jacket, never to be seen again. The material is silk woven into an amazing textured pattern, it is seriously unlike anything you've ever seen!! Jil Sander is know for his amazing couture, this is a prime example of what fashion genius can create. Perfect condition, just amazing. Fully lined, the outer layer is 100% silk, and fully lined with 100% cotton. Made in Italy, like the finest in couture. Worn only twice, it is basically like new and in amazing condition. Labeled a European size 36, which usually equates to an American size 4. Closes in the front with a single hook and eye closure. Please note in the photos the sleeves are rolled up, but can be rolled back down. A truly amazing piece!!
