Several designers in Europe this season spoke of the subway as a reference, mainly because of the vastness and diversity of the people and individual expression, exhibited under it.
Luke and Lucie Meier made no mention of the underworld, but in a preview cited a desire to “personally celebrate” with their fall collection for Jil Sanders.
“You miss all the characters around you because we’ve been apart,” Luke Meier said on Zoom, referring to all the curbs of social life amid the COVID-19 wave of the past two years.
Elegance is another word that is mentioned over and over again. “We felt it was important that we present something that made people feel good, that lifted their spirits,” says Luke, describing “what a masculine outfit balances with something.” It’s a little more sexy.”
Around a circular set dominated by a giant glowing orb at the American Cathedral in Paris, Jil Sander’s fall figure is the kind of guy who wears his astrological sign embroidered on the sleeve of a wool coat, or scribble on his silk scarf and wrap him in his trousers into stiff ankle boots with a silver patch in place of his innovative tunic.
This design duo seem to be very interested in heating up the brand’s minimalist heritage with something warm and fuzzy – or vice versa – so they could throw a crochet necklace into one. heavy, unbuttoned jacket; Soften the coziness of a translucent herringbone bathrobe with sleek leather flaps peeking out from below, or print myths on an austere jacket or oversized sweater.
The neat, boxy tailoring stands out, especially when paired with the glossy, high-quality lapels of a suit: sometimes satin, sometimes leather. We’re not dealing with a typical black character here.
