At Jil Sander, the duo Luke and Lucie Meier signed their second collection combining comforting fabrics and futuristic inspiration.
They found solid footing in softness and comfort, contextualizing the lineup as a vision for the future, one of protection, humanity and sensitivity. “It’s a collection about the future, but in a human, warm, comforting way”. stated Lucie and Luke Meier in backstage. “We want to make ourselves feel good about the future and think about it in a positive way”, continued the duo.
To do so, the Meiers kept the minimalist codes that made the reputation of the house founded in 1973 by the German designer Jil Sander. However, they pigmented almost monochromatic looks with touches of red, navy, salmon pink, brown and purple as well as with delicate floral patterns. They breathed air and lightness into the aesthetic with tactile fabrics and silhouettes constructed to graze and float around the body. Many models – both female and male – carried duvets or wore them draped around the shoulders or cinched around the waist, adding to the silhouettes an asymmetrical touch and seem like an invitation to comfort and softness.
