products

so far jil's unceremonious exit from the label hasn't affected the goods...the $1400 sweaters and $2,500 suits never looked better...major brand overdose...but don't miss the leather goods...

clientele

twice, i was the only "customer" on the floor, but was it because i wasn't in a private viewing room, or having collections shuttled to my hotel suite?...

service

brrrr...icy, and a bit haughty -- but just what i would expect nevertheless...some of the salespeople aren't quite at the level one would expect from an elite label like jil sander...

interior

cool concrete floors, 30-foot ceilings, spare, clean lines...looks a little early 90's, but has worn well

ambience

>like a beautiful castle: impeccable, but cold and empty<
