The German designer Jil Sander, internationally known as the “Queen of Less”, established her own brand in 1968. The firm flourished during the late 80s and 90s and became one of the standard bearers for minimalist fashion. The company has had different owners over the years, but has always maintained the same philosophy: sleek, neat pieces stripped of any unnecessary adornments or trimmings, leaving only pure elegance and sophisticated sobriety.
After Raf Simons left the fashion house to take over the reins at Dior, Rodolfo Paglialunga was appointed Creative Director in 2014. Although he faced a tough challenge, the new designer has perfectly captured the spirit of the brand and has managed to preserve its austere yet über-classy essence.
At OnlyLens we are delighted to welcome the new Jil Sander eyewear collection to our catalog. The elegant range was developed in collaboration with spectacles specialists, Rodenstock.
This joint venture has resulted in a series of stylish and exclusive sunglasses. All the models feature minimalistic modern frames and stand out for their excellent quality, the perfection in the details and the extraordinary craftsmanship, all Rodenstock trademarks. Likewise, their polished style, fine design and discreet color palette reflect Jil Sander’s legendary talent for distinctive, understated luxury.
In this era of striking Rococo shades with precious stones, gold, mirrored-lenses and bold prints, Jil Sander’s sunglasses will win the heart of all those looking for an overtly avant-garde look that puts personality in the spotlight thanks to the extraordinary simplicity of their lines.
