At this point it’s pretty hard to follow who is leaving who and which designer goes where, although most of the time there are signs, if nowhere else, than on the runway at least. Lucie and Luke Meier joined Jil Sander last season and joined forces from two totally different parts of the fashion world – namely streetwear (Luke from Supreme) and haute couture (Lucie from Dior) -, to create something amazingly, purely fresh.
They started from a futuristic picture about mankind leaving Earth to live in a different corner of the universe, twisted with some real human feelings. “It’s the images you have in your head,” Luke said, referring to the familiar shiny, modern, but almost sterile idea of space, “but not taking it literally. We imagined going to space but taking a lot of things with you that make you feel comfortable. Things you have an emotional connection to, that make you think of home. A very human touch.”
Human touches as soft fabrics, airy plisses, floral prints, pop of colours or extremely sharp and therefore satisfying tailoring. There is not much in these which would shout for ice cold logic or useful but often not too joyful practicality, but something which pleases both human eyes and soul.
Also who wouldn’t wish for a built in pillow or blanket in the coldest winters (or spring for that matter)?
Have a great Sunday night!
