Solo designer retrospectives are on the rise with major exhibits (such as Rei Kawakubo at the Met in New York) and smaller ones (such as Anna Sui at the Fashion and Textiles Museum in London) opening all over the world in the coming months. And now, Jil Sander is being added to the fold, with a new exhibit in Frankfurt’s Museum Angewandte Kunst.

Curated by Matthias Wagner K, the exhibit (which does not yet have a name) will feature large scale multi-media installations that will focus on Sander's career in fashion, as well as product design, architecture and apparently, her garden art. According to the museum's website, the show’s thesis will ask, “What is the key to quality in design?”

Meanwhile, WWD reports that Sander herself will contribute a catalogue for the show, and may also be working on a second book.

The news of this exhibit comes at an interesting time, as earlier this week, former creative director Rodolfo Paglialunga’s departure from the brand was announced, a position he held for three years. Rumors swirled a few months ago that Simon Porte Jacquemus was being eyed for the position—perhaps the young designer will trek over to the exhibit for research purposes.

The exhibit will open November 4, 2017, and will run until May 16, 2018.
