Epicenters of beauty
Among the comprehensive range of beautiful collectibles found in the Andreas Murkudis auctions, there is an integral collection of Jil Sander lookbooks.
“Her lookbooks are works of art — an overall picture of such precision and beauty — incomparable to this day.”
The 1990s were the hour of birth of today’s oh-so-contemporary minimalism. A game changer that was sometimes misunderstood as trivial: stoic and aggregated.
An aesthetic so simple it surpasses time.
“Jil created around herself a creative epicenter, beautiful in every respect. In everything she did at the time she was groundbreaking. She is exceptional because her work is still relevant in all aesthetic dimensions” Andreas says.
Jil Sander celebrated minimalist collections, opened impeccably designed retail spaces and worked with the most prestigious stylists and photographers. Indicative of her vision, her lookbooks spoke a completely new language.
“As reflected in the lookbooks, she was basically the pontiff of minimalism. Nowadays, everybody is familiar with Craig McDean, but at the time he was only known in sophisticated circles — that was 21 years ago, and none of their work has lost its relevance, neither clothing, nor styling, nor photography — others do not even come close?"
