Luke and Lucie Meier continue to build on the brand’s rep for minimal luxury at Paris Fashion Week


Milan-based label Jil Sander revealed its Spring/Summer 2019 collection at Paris Fashion Week, with creative directors Lucie and Luke Meier building on the label’s reputation for minimalist luxury.

This season saw the husband-and-wife duo give classic items subtle twists, as they merged traditional ideas of tailoring and uniform with more progressive cuts and textures.

This includes suits with kilts, shorter-cut jackets and trousers and extended shirts, while polyester is mixed with wool and natural fabrics are kept un-dyed.

Despite its muted color palette, the collection features pops of color in the form of photographic images printed on white poplin shirts and eye-catching oversized knitwear pieces.

Another key motif is the use of lines and grids alongside natural finishings and garment dyed details, which intended to provide a “human touch within the functional world of the uniform.”

Similarly to themes from the label’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection, these features are used as references to something familiar.
