Jil Sander Navy
Starting a lower-priced line is not uncommon for fashion houses these days. But you would have expected Jil Sander to go the exclusive route à la Alber Elbaz at Lanvin (“…you don’t want to be the stepsister. You want to be Cinderella. Show me one girl who wants to be the stepsister.”)
The capsule collection, titled Navy, will only be released next Spring, but here is a sneak preview of the collection via WWD. A shirt from Navy will retail for a wallet-friendly $125, not bad considering a shirt from the main line costs nearly 4 times as much.
