Thursday 14th September: Kiosk, a unique Jil Sander café concept is popping up under Selfridges Duke Street canopy from 11th September until 1st October. For 4 weeks, customers can shop a curated edit of magazines, Jil Sander’s publication, A Magazine Curated By Lucie and Luke Meier and enjoy a menu of hot and cold drinks.
The one-of-a-kind destination will house and sell an array of magazines spanning architecture, fashion, design and culture, as well as Selfridges’ recently launched Yellow Pages; a free 72-page zine with a distinct Selfridges point of view, exploring how to live big this season.
The Jil Sander Kiosk is inspired by the modernist design that is synonymous with Jil Sander stores, with a pure, geometric, and white aesthetic and the brand’s signature logo front and center. Alongside this there is a dedicated space on the ground floor Accessories Hall where customers can shop Jil Sander items.

A Magazine, curated by Lucie and Luke Meier

Los Angeles, by Chris Rhodes, was realized following the invitation of Creative Directors’ Lucie and Luke Meier to portray their Summer 2023 creations in the context of the city: the collection’s main inspiration. The book captures the essence of Los Angeles as a progressive and inspiring space. British photographer Chris Rhodes focuses on the characters, their movements, lights, and colors, merging fashion and environment. The images reflect the designers’ quest for balance, blending glamour and functionality, day and night, and traditional craftsmanship with innovative techniques. The result embodies the desire for freedom and represents different ways of living and thinking.
Macro is the newest volume in the ongoing series Lucie and Luke Meier are creating in collaboration with artists and photographers. For this instalment they invited a long-standing collaborator, British image-maker Chris Rhodes, to capture their Fall Winter 2022 women and men’s collections in a series of still-life photographs. Macro is the testimony of a journey, of an idea that adds a different dimension to the purpose of Lucie and Luke Meier’s work, a suggestion on how design can be unconventionally perceived and displayed.
