Jil and Afganistan

People, MAK in Frankfurt is still showing

A very special show honoring the German designer

With her decision to exhibit her work at the Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt/Main, 
Jil Sander has turned her attention to the past. This
is quite a new experience for someone
 who has always preferred the up-and-coming. After an eighteen months long, intensive 
involvement of the designer, the exhibition opens as a multimedia spectacle, 
combining architecture, colour, light, film, sound, text, photography, fashion and art 
in dynamic spatial compositions. As such, the exhibition is less a retrospective 
overview than a fresh interpretation of the Jil Sander spirit and its aesthetics.

It is quite interesting that the company logo has remained
the same through all those years.
Perfect font decision: Futura No 2 ExtraBold.

Well, her original name is: Heidemarie Jilin Sander.
I am kind of a font follower, interested in fonts.
So, made a test: how would my name look like
when using this timeless font?
Honestly: stupid.

Even if I choose an abbreviation of my second name ...
it does not look right.
Does this mean that ... your parents can affect your career
by choosing a totally wrong name???
Well, philosophy never was my favourite subject. 

Searching for more similarities with Jil and me ...
all these collections of ... crap!!!
Helping her by colour combinations.

Which colour combinations?
We all know Jil Sander of her timeless elegant dark, grey, black clothes.
In the exhibition you can see a few colorful examples as well.
Also very, very cool.

I did visit the museum today with y group of Afghan women.
You know, this design was created together
with an Italian artist and Afghan women!
 The women were stichting some Afghan patterns
and this Italian artist made art and design out of it.
And can you see them: the clothes in this pic?!

View from the MAK over Frankfurt.
Yes, the reflexion is on purpose on the pic.

This post modern building at river Main still has something
that makes you wonder and admire.

Check JIL SANDER fashion exhibition,
running still until the 6th of May 2018.

I just have to post this pic,
Marja on the left made those "Anelmaiset" socks
for our Friend E and she really was, not only
surprised but also very happy!
