Jil Sander Men's Accessories Fall Winter 2008/2009
At last, more and more of the luxury labels are putting up new pics of their fall winter collections online for viewing. The end of spring summer season and now the new items are starting to hit the stores.
Jil Sander just recently put up their new fall winter collection for viewing on their website, www.jilsander.com. I have to admit, I am not thrilled with their offerings so far. The bags although in interesting shapes, looks cumbersome and not very user friendly. There are fabric and leather range to choose from. The leather feathers interesting patchwork detailing with diamond shape panelling. The canvas range features marble print designs (or they could be leather) or ribbed navy texture fabric. Somehow it lacks a certain appeal to me. Perhaps not my style of bag designs. But it may resonate well with some of you guys:-)
footwear is ultra thick and chunky soles. They looked really heavy and 'Ronald McDonald' shoes which I am also not impressed. The signature trend for Jil Sander and Raf Simons. Miu Miu mens did chunky shoes many seasons ago. But again, this is my opinion. Some of you may like this kind of design. The sneakers are pretty much standard designs we see everywhere...but there is a pair with blue croc skin trimmings on the heel that looks interesting. However, the Jil Sander logo could be smaller and more subtle. Jil Sander should be more understated and minimalist in their styles and looks.
I will have to see the clothes in person to give a better review. Maybe the fashion show will help.
