Many of the shows in Milan are overtly sexy, so it's good to have the clean, graphic lines of Jil Sander as a counterbalance.  Here the maxi silhouette ruled and the verticality of the shape was emphasised by the use of diagonal, graphic lines and stripes on sweaters and wrap dresses. Trousers were tailored, cut wide and cropped.  There was some restrained use of colour - yellow, pinks and oranges - which lifted the largely navy and black colour scheme.
