If there’s one thing that one should always expect from Jil Sander, it’s extremely clean lines. The label was known for its impeccable minimalism back when Sander was still with the company, and now that Raf Simons has taken the helm, he’s continued the traditional of sometimes-stark modernism to great critical success. Jil Sander Spring 2011 was a watershed moment for modern trends, and Jil Sander Fall 2011 is very nearly as good.

In fact, the handbags might be better, at least in some ways. This collection shows a greater breadth of accessory options than the last go-round, with everything from oversized totes to prim little satchels and clutches to some very literal box bags with corners so sharp that you could poke an eye out, so be careful. The pieces emphasize the “retro” in “retro-modern” and recall a time when tailoring was key, so you surely won’t find a stray detail in any of these designs.
