Jil Sander is likely the last designer you would picture employing a Hawaiian print, but there it was for Spring at Jil Sander Navy
. But don't break out the leis just yet: In appropriately understated fashion, the print was merely a suggestion of the tropical motif—it wasn't until you got up close that the flowers emerged. There was an undercover sportiness afoot, too. A collarless, bracelet-sleeve jacket and matching tee were surprisingly techy to the touch. From a distance, the fabric looked like a rich knit. The other side of sport is prep, and there was a chic collegiate appeal to a sweet pink bomber jacket. It looked great with a pale yellow knit and a high-waisted powder blue skirt that A-lined to mid-calf. The same knit top graduated to perfect workwear when paired with an expertly cut cobalt blazer and crisp pleated pants. That versatility is a sign of how this collection is designed: as a complete wardrobe that can shift and adjust from season to season and climate to climate—maybe even in Hawaii.
