When Jil Sander opened her first store in Hamburg, Germany, in 1967 at the tender age of 24, who would have known that she would become the originator of a style of fashion that still rules the runways?

Known as the “godmother of minimalism”, fashion designer Jil Sander always had a pure, understated line to her clothes, and despite leaving her brand name company, Jil Sander remains a by-word for simple elegance mixed with practicality.

Since he took over in 2000, Belgian designer Raf Simons has continued to create clothes and accessories with the same androgynous clean lines that Sander was so well-known for.

The Jil Sander Miss Lady Double Shoulder Bag, for example, is the perfect minimal-yet-maximal accessory, even though it’s quite small. 


With its solid shoulder strap, four functional compartments and double magnetic snaps for closure, the Jil Sander Miss Lady Double Shoulder Bag is both elegant and capacious enough to be practical for a small bag.

The bag is available in white, lime green and a pink so deep as to be almost red, a unique and stand-out shade. The classic “box” shape of the Jil Sander Miss Lady Double Shoulder Bag is also something that won’t date easily, meaning you’ll get years of use out of it too. 

The Jil Sander Miss Lady Double Shoulder Bag costs $1,960 and is now available from the Jil Sander boutique at the Hilton Hotel, #02-22, Tel: 6304 1353.
