Jil Sander Navy
is living by the girl scout law for Spring. The lower-priced Sander line (which still sells alongside labels like Stella McCartney at department stores) combined a scout's innocence and curiosity (sorry, no Thin Mints included) with characteristic clean lines and techy fabrics for a modern approach to uniform dressing. To-the-knee bermuda shorts styled with a sleeveless blouse and grosgrain necktie were taken straight from the scout's handbook. As were the new label's new line of bijoux, which featured silver bracelets with enamel charms reminiscent of merit badges. The most successful looks interpreted the theme a bit more loosely. Standouts included a metallic eelskin A-line skirt that was paired with a shrunken military blazer, and a raw-edged silk day dress in a colorful chevron origami pattern with a forest green flak jacket tossed over it. The JS Navy customer is similar to the Jil Sander one, but she's dressing for a comparatively relaxed moment in her week.
