Jil Sander: Ready-to-Wear SS21

Husband and wife design duo Lucie and Luke Meier are masters of refinement. It’s what makes them the perfect fit for Jil Sander. The pair create quality clothes, without any gimmicks – steering clear of designing ‘hype’ pieces in favour of something quieter, and more elegant.

Their latest collection for the brand is clean and tender, dotted with relaxed silhouettes in gentle hues. Such tactful designs will bring a subtle sort of glamour to your everyday. From tunics and chiffon gowns in the palest of lemon yellows, to leather trench coats equipped with hand-woven rope belts and soft pocket-bags – these are the sort of pieces you will go back to, day in, day out.

Simple jersey shirt dresses and creased rain macs walked alongside more crafty additions to the new Jil Sander wardrobe. Handwork – a Lucie and Luke Meier signature – is evoked through crocheting and pleating, as well as smocking, and embroidery – creating beautiful garments that are made with careful consideration.
