If you are a minimal aesthete who adores making fashion statements in pieces from Helmut Lang and Raf Simons, you will love Jil Sander's new capsule collection named Jil Sander Navy. The line will be carried right alongside to the more expensive Jil Sander at Barney's, which is a statement in itself. Expect the same boxy dresses, trench coats, and shirt-dresses that are typical of the higher end line in Jil Sander, but with a brighter palette of colors, and very little navy. The materials in this collection are also very intricate, like cotton voile, micro twill, and techno gabardine. The prices will start at around $125 and cap at $1000, and this pre-spring 2011 collection will not hit Barney's until December of this year. The line is being more targeted to the American and Japanese markets, where Jil Sander sales have gone up in the last year.
