The Jil Sander collection for Spring/Summer 2012 is packed with talking points and intrigue. A multi-faceted collection which draws on a broad timescale and range of influence, the brand’s woven sweater is certainly one of the key show-pieces. Pulling an artisanal folk theme into a distinctly contemporary environment, it is intricately detailed in its expert construction.
Hand-woven, from intertwined strips of cotton and nylon fabric, the crocheted construction brings this piece a wonderful thickness and springy texture. Crafted with a wide neck and short sleeve, the sweater draws together a green, blue, and red colour-scheme in-keeping with the dark and textured edge to the Jil Sander collection for Spring/Summer 2012. This piece fits true to size.
