Images from the new Jil Sander Navy lookbook have hit the intarwebz. I'm really enjoying the modern silhouettes and clean lines, as well as the highly tailored aesthetic which so defines Jil Sander. Jil Sander Navy is not skimping out on the little details that are characteristic of the main line, and admittedly, that was my biggest worry. However, I'm not super stoked on much of the pieces in the debut lookbook. There's a few pieces that I like, but for the most part this collection doesn't seem very inspired to me. I really hope that Jil Sander Navy pushes the envelope for their next collection. A diffusion line doesn't have to be a sad, pathetic version of the mainline.

Hell hath frozen over the day I weareth pink, but OMG look at the oxfords in look #1! Blue canvas with black wingtips and a wooden sole...perfection!
Looks #1 and #2 are total yawns. But dress in look #3 + aforementioned oxfords = A+++ WOULD TTLY WEAR ERRYDAY. The understated, soothing print makes me want to listen to Pure Moods: Vol. 1, or the only volume of Pure Moods that you should ever care about.
Still not really crushing on anything here, but I really like the crisp tailoring of the shirt dress and shift dress.
So what do you all think? Are you impressed? I really appreciate that Jil Sander Navy stays true to Jil Sander's core, but I personally think they could have created a more interesting collection.
PS: My vacation to Spain was amazing, and stay tuned for many photos from my trip!
