Menswear for Fall & Winter 2012 - by Jil SanderWith the change in season comes a great deal of new possibilities for those who have a strong interest in fashion. Designers often clamor to put together a collection of pieces that not only speak for the change in temperature, but also breathe new life into men’s fashion. Jill Sander is one such designer, and is creating pieces specifically for the modern man who isn’t afraid to put a little bit of effort into the way he dresses. Sander’s designs are sleek and modern, yet carry with them a classic feel that is difficult to ignore. While far from being inexpensive (many jackets retail for over $3,000), these pieces are extraordinary in their design, and are thus more than worth paying attention to. Consider the following aspects of the Jill Sander Fall/Winter 2012 collection, as well as the standout piece that sets it apart from the crowd.

Black is one of the most important colors (although many would argue that is NOT a color, but that’s another story) that one can incorporate into their wardrobe. It should come as no surprise, then, that a designer like Jill Sander knows just how to utilize it properly. Sander’s collection is rife with sleek, streamlined shades of jet black; think black military boots and leather driving gloves. In past years, dressing in all black might be considered a “gothic” approach to fashion, but the look has become far more mainstream than ever before, and is now equated with modern sophistication. While a preoccupation with black can be dangerous when approached without care, Jill Sander pulls it off with ease in this collection.
Another aspect of the Jill Sander fall/winter collection that makes it stand out is its use of well-defined lines. Lines can be seen in just about every piece in the collection; there’s nothing boxy going on here. Strong pleats in pants, crisp definition in leather jackets and an overall sense of “slim-fit” makes this the perfect collection for men who prefer to take a more modern, well-tailored approach to fashion. Well-defined lines can even be found in tees in this collection, as each is designed to be “fitted” in appearance; they should be, given the fact that they sell for upwards of $200 per piece.
Standout Piece - Black Leather Jacket
One of the pieces that truly stands out in this collection is the Jill Sander black leather jacket. This isn’t your standard leather jacket; this is a piece that you’d be right at home wearing at a formal event, and is as about as dressy as leather outerwear gets. Constructed out of high-quality lambs leather, this fully-lined and detailed jacket features a classic shoulder, notched slim lapels, side pockets and a slim, tailored fit; there’s even a breast pocket should you choose to outfit it with a pocket square. At over $3,000, it’s fair to say that most won’t be able to afford this piece. Still, it certainly helps to highlight this collection as being one of the finest of the year.
