JIL SANDER HOLDS FIRST EVER SOLO EXHIBITION IN FRANKFURT // Material Magazine Online
Erschienen am 08. November 2017 auf Material Magazine Online.
From November 4th, the Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt presents the very first solo exhibition of Jil Sander. The retrospective curated by the German designer herself and museum director Matthias Wagner K is much more than just a show of her work. It is an invitation into the universe of timeless elegance.
Jil Sander is both a legend and a secret. The designer and business woman, who founded her company in 1968, is one of these very few people in the fashion industry, that prefer the solitude in private life much more than fame and glamour. So it did not really surprise that even on the launch day of her globally first solo exhibition the 73 year-old allowed press, photographers and guests only a short glimpse of her person. All the more the retrospective, which takes place from November 4th 2017 until May 6th 2018 at the Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt, carries her thumbsprint in every detail. Jil Sander and the museum worked together very closely for the huge and unique project. This might be one reason, why the exhibition at the end became much more than just a retrospective of her work.
