A new photography tome charts 70 years of millinery at the house of Dior, from Christian’s own illustrations to the fantasy creations of A Magazine N°12 curator Stephen Jones – house milliner since 1996.
Lucie and Luke Meier
A Magazine Curated By N°21 has been curated by Lucie and Luke Meier, the co-creative directors of Jil Sander. In a process beginning in July 2019, the Meiers have approached their ‘carte blanche’ project for A Magazine as a call for reflection and an open dialogue on the dualities of the one theme that is present in all of their work:
HUMAN NATURE / MOTHER NATURE.
