Jeff Mills stars in Fall/Winter 2023 campaign for German fashion house Jil Sander


The iconic figure of Detroit's techno scene has not only served as a model for some pieces within the collection but has also lent his distinctive narration to a short film. Directed by Stephen Kidd and filmed in Manchester, the movie delves into Mills' contemplations on the convergence of music, technology, and fashion.

Mills shared his thoughts on the relationship between music and fashion, saying, "As I became interested in music, I was also really interested in fashion. As a musician, I can draw parallels between the two, contemplating aspects like shades, colors, textures, and translating them into sound, even considering the profound silence that follows sound."

This collaboration marks another stride in Mills' connection with the fashion world. In the past, he provided a soundtrack for a Dior runway show, held dramatically against the backdrop of the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt last December. More recently, he released an album under the name "Tomorrow Comes The Harvest," a trio project featuring Mills, Indian tabla player Prabhu Edouard, and Guyanese keyboardist Jean-Phi Dary.
