Who is this power duo at Jil Sanders?
Meet Lucie Meier and Luke Meier.
Swiss-born Lucie Meier has a resumé that includes a list of very legendary designer houses like Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton and Dior. Luke M., on the other hand, is from Canada. He worked at Supreme for 8 years as head of design and he’s also co-founding partner to streetwear brand OAMC.
The duo is a refreshing mix of high fashion and contemporary streetwear. No doubt that the duo will push the brand forward and make them relevant again. Starting with the Spring-Summer 2018 womenswear collection that will be designed by the power duo.
The post-Raf era
Before Raf Simons decided to take the offer at Dior, he held this house together for almost a decade. From 2005 to 2012, his recognizable minimalistic approach shook the world. Back then wearing a Jil Sander piece was considered relevant but after Raf, it was never the same again.
Hopefully, the Meier couple will take the brand where it used to be and slay their way back to the top.
