Discover JIL SANDER Spring Summer 2022 Men’s Collection, that explores autonomy, lightness and clarity, presented with a lookbook and video on June 27th, during the last day of the recently finished Paris Fashion Week. Models Dylan Roques, Henry Kitcher, Malick Bodian, Moustapha Sy, Takfarines Bengana, and Woosang Kim star in the lookbook lensed by fashion photographer Chris Rhodes. In charge of art direction was Heiko Keinath, with set design from Prevot Anne Sophie, and casting direction by Julia Lange. Beauty is work of hair stylist Damien Boissinot, makeup artist Laura Dominique, and manicurist Rosimar Viana. The collection is inspired by the multicultural cities, art, and the power of looking and finding beauty in the mundane. It brings functional and luxurious looks.
“The colour palette, between off-white and charcoal is uplifting and sensual: soft yellow, pale blue, mint milk, pink, lilac, light orange, sage, tobacco, and cocoa. An all-leather look is red: trousers and shirt. Colour blocks knitted in different cotton, linen, silk, and wool yarns are balanced to compose precious, iconic knitwear. Graphic elements appear throughout the collection: a large diagonal white stripe crosses the front of a soft wool mélange shirt-jacket. Connections are sharp, detailed, textured, tactile. The conventional becomes unconventional: a wheat-pasted shop advert is turned into a pattern embroidered all over a field jacket and overall, or into individual artworks, unconventionally placed and exploded in scale.” – from Jil Sander
