Wim Wenders directs film series for Jil Sander

‘Paused By’ is the debut campaign for design duo Luke and Lucie Meier

It was only a few months ago that husband and wife design duo Luke and Lucie Meier presented their debut collection for Jil Sander. Now, the SS18 collection has been presented in a series of films directed by Wim Wenders

Wenders – known for films Wings of Desire and Paris, Texas – worked with the design pair to film the five trailers entitled “Paused By”. Showcasing pieces from the new collection, each of the short films is stopped at a key moment to keep you guessing about what could happen next. The first of the films sees a variety of well-dressed individuals around different locations in Berlin, before pausing at the moment a scuba diver is emerging out of a lake. Who knows what happens next... 

According to the pair, the campaign was “an ode to the purity of emotion and the delicate balance between innocence and sophistication”, similar to the overall message of the collection that saw a return to the hyper-minimal roots of the house. The series of films will be released throughout December. 

Watch the trailer below.
