Jil Sander presented a multi-dimensional look at her Spring/Summer 2014 collection with opposing plexiglass panels set up to show the apparel from every angle.

Jil Sander cuts down on stern silhouettes with a softer, more appealing version.

A softer silhouette, neutral palette, and mix of tomboyish separates and workwear toppers give the Sander sophisticate plenty of room to maneuver next season. If you want to see how a master craftsman approaches modern apparel with their own, signature tailoring techniques, Jil Sander is a brand that concretizes the concept. Daywear frocks are simple but achingly gorgeous, presented with neckline folds, cinched waists, and calf-hugging hemlines. There is a phenomenal topper that deserves to be added to next season’s must-have list – a single-button trench coat served in shades of white, pale lemon, and blush pink. Sander’s  flirty dresses hacksawed together out of bosom-covering rectangular panels that met with a fuller skirt below come in both blazing white and metallic marbled tweed, and she gets experimental with a beige A-line dresses done up in lustrous vinyl. Temporary relief from all of the sturdy neutrals comes in the form of contemporary paint-splatter printed dresses in a variety of appealing candy colors. Though Jil Sander is one of the most reserved among the minimalists working in high fashion today, she was not afraid to embrace flesh-baring cropped tops, slit bandeaus, and plunging necklines. While minimalism sometimes goes hand-in-hand with stylish severity, Sander cuts down on stern silhouettes with a softer, more appealing version that brings a sense of wearable coziness to Spring/Summer 2014.
