NEW YORK — Jil Sander diehards were shopping in full force Friday morning as the brand’s flagship here made its debut.
The 7,000-square-foot store at 11 East 57th Street is an homage to the label’s minimalist aesthetic. The space’s striking limestone facade, which features double-height arched windows, gives way to a sleek, spare white-walled interior with warm golden lighting. Three levels of pale limestone floors, thin nickel silver merchandise displays and frosted glass are subtle but luxe elements used by the architect Michael Gabellini in an effort to emphasize the clothes as opposed to overwhelming them with an overt store design.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
