Grass green and bright yellow are just as popular as the classic black and white variant and nude nuances. The women can continue to wear feminine dresses and choose the silhouette that suits them best. Long hippie dresses, boxy pencil dresses or tailored 50s dresses: anything goes. Denim remains an important topic for men too: colorful dyes are obsolete. Dark indigo fabrics and special washes are on the rise. 2 Sunday shopping.

29 Living & Living What kind of care do cashmere and silk need? How do I sort my wardrobe? And what to do if your favorite blouse has a stain? Tips and tricks for the correct handling of clothes and laundry. Small textile care basics Text: Linda-Luise Bickenbach Illustrations: Bente Schipp Whether you are a fashion fanatic or a fashion grouch, no one can avoid getting dressed. And that's not that bad at all. After all, our clothes can express how we are feeling right now. It gives pointers to our lifestyle and even makes a new person out of us if we want to make it really big. In order for your own clothing to keep what it promised when you bought it, you should observe a few care rules. If you want to take care of your clothes, first of all you have to stow them properly. Tip: do it like the professionals in the fashion stores. Properly stowed away For most clothes, it's better to hang up than fold. Skirts and trousers are well supplied with clamps; Hang blouses, shirts, jackets and fine shirts on normal hangers. This way, there are no unnecessary kinks that can stress the material. It's also easier to keep track of things instead of digging around for the right pieces for hours. Beware of inferior wooden hangers: splinters and + unevenness can lead to cracks and pulled threads. Do not hang up knitted and cashmere items, but rather fold them + carefully and lay them down. Otherwise they wear out and lose their shape. Fine lingerie, nightwear and nylons feel at home in drawers lined with paper. If you want to be on the safe side, take white paper, then nothing stains. Get suitable shoe trees + for sensitive shoes or insert soft paper, then they will keep their shape. Then wrap it with tissue paper and store it in individual boxes that protects against quirks and dust. If you want to keep an overview, photograph each pair individually and stick the photos on the front of the box. That saves the hassle of searching around. Handbags are good + if they are filled with a decent helping of tissue paper. This prevents unsightly kinks and dents. Textile care begins in the wardrobe In general, you should + roll your belt and hang up ties: this way the belt adapts to the waist and the tie is protected from waves. Tip for long evening dresses: hang on top of a + hanger, attach a clamp hanger at the bottom of the hem and hang from both sides. Protects the hem from fraying and avoids mountains of fabric on the cabinet floor. As is well known, order is half the battle. This is especially true in the wardrobe. That is why you should opt for a single classification system and consistently follow it through: Either sort by model (trousers to trousers, skirts to skirts, jackets to jackets, etc.), by topic (office outfits, casual, evening wear, etc.) or by color. The most important rule at the end: clear out the wardrobe + immediately. Muck out again next week. From then on repeat every six months. This creates space and gives your own fashion collection room to breathe instead of crushing it.New! Dispose of in a sustainable way: Since February 2013, the Swedish fashion chain H&M has been collecting used clothes and taking care of their environmentally friendly reuse. Garments of all brands and in every condition are accepted. For each bag they hand in, customers receive a 15 percent discount on a new item at H&M. Inquire at the H&M branch of your center! 1/13 29

30 Silk Luxury materials have luxury demands Originally from China, silk is one of the finest natural materials in the world. It is obtained from the cocoons of the silkworm, which in turn are the larvae of the silkworm. The most amazing property of silk: it is pleasantly cool in summer and warm in winter. However, the fine fabric is not easy to care for. Perfume and deodorant are poison for silk. + Therefore, you should definitely apply both before getting dressed and let them dry thoroughly before putting on the silk blouse or silk dress. Strong sunlight gets silk + badly. Probably the worst enemy of silk is + water: For this reason, never wash a single stain with water or sprinkle the silk with water before ironing. Also be careful with steam irons, they drip! Silk cleaning If you want to clean your silk clothing or laundry at home instead of at a professional's, you should note the following: 1. Soak light silk for a maximum of five minutes in lukewarm water with a special silk shampoo. Briefly pull printed or dark silk through the cold hand bath and do not soak at all. It is essential to use a detergent that is expressly suitable for silk. 2. Only gently rock the fabric back and forth when washing. 3. After five minutes at the latest, rinse the silk in cold water. Some experts recommend adding a teaspoon of wine vinegar to remove the soap residue. 4. Important: do not wring out silk under any circumstances! It is extremely sensitive when wet. 5. To dry the garment after rinsing it, roll it in a soft towel or, even more gently, place it between two towels. 5. Then lay the silk flat on a fresh, dry towel and carefully shape the ends of the garment. 6. Dry at air temperature until the fabric is still slightly damp. Avoid direct heat sources such as the sun and heating. 7. Finally, set the iron to the lowest temperature and iron gently on the left side. Cashmere When it comes to luxury materials, cashmere is one of the cosiest things nature has to offer. Obtaining real cashmere wool is correspondingly complex: the cashmere goats that live in Mongolia and the Himalayas have an unusually fine, soft and light undercoat that is combed out at the end of winter. Each goat produces only a few hundred grams of it, which also explains the lavish price that cashmere wool brings with it. Cashmere is a natural hair that smells fresh again by simply airing it. Never wear your cashmere sweater + two days in a row, and ventilate it well after each use. This way you can delay the washing process for as long as possible. Knots cannot be avoided + and are even considered proof of quality because they occur particularly frequently with very fine yarn. The trick: shave instead of plucking! Well-stocked wool shops offer lint shavers, with the help of which the small knots can be easily removed. After two to three uses on dry cashmere, everything looks like new. Cashmere cleaning The ghosts are arguing about the best cleaning method for cashmere: Some advise using the washing machine wool program at 30 degrees and a low spin speed, in a drum that is no more than half full. The others swear by the good old hand wash: To do this, turn your cashmere piece inside out and carefully press it through in cold water. Please only use special detergent suitable for cashmere, do not use fabric softener and never wring or rub! Insider tip from the experts: A mini shot of aloe vera should make the material super soft again. To dry, place the garment on a fresh towel and carefully straighten it. Turn after a few hours; Direct proximity to heating and direct sunlight are taboo. If you want to iron, you should pay attention to a particularly low temperature. Voilà! 30 1/13

31 Living & Housing! k c e r h Oh Sc The stain has to go Typical stain! Of all things, the expensive designer fumble, the brand new twin set or the beloved winter coat got caught. But before you resort to the usual stain removers, you should know the following: Some textiles are simply too valuable to try on yourself. This is the result of Stiftung Warentest after an extensive test of various anti-stain agents. + According to Stiftung Warentest, most stains in washable textiles can be removed better with a good heavy-duty detergent at 60 degrees than with special agents. + For delicate colored laundry that must not be washed at 60 degrees or with heavy-duty detergent, pretreatment agents and additives optimize the result. + Always rub the fabric very carefully when treating a stain specifically. Never rub or brush loose fabrics such as cashmere, silk and linen, otherwise the fibers will shift. + While grease stains almost disappear on their own with wool and cashmere by spreading, silk becomes a problem: If the washing process (see above) has failed and professional cleaning fails, live with the stain instead of risking a total loss. + + Always check stain remover on an inconspicuous area first. Speed ​​is the key! Rinse the stain immediately with water, except of course for silk. If necessary, use suitable soaps, dishwashing detergents or detergent products and then put them in the washing machine. + + Stains containing protein such as milk, blood and eggs should only be washed out with cold water, otherwise they will stick to the fabric. Salt on red wine would be too good to be true. Try boiling water if the material allows it. And please don't scald! 1 / _Textilpflege.indd: 00

36 Jil Sander was the first German designer of importance. Her reduced style made her world famous in the 1980s. Now the Queen of Less has made a late comeback. Photos: Jil Sander

37 Fashion comeback of a queen Text: Cornelia Tomerius When Jil Sander bought fabric on a large scale in Paris over a year ago, she delivered the best coup to the fashion world for free: Is Jil Sander returning to Jil Sander? This rumor spread in the industry almost faster than the fine fabrics came off the bale. The idea was a bit explosive, after all, it wouldn't be the first time the designer has returned to her label. And indeed: The story of Jil Sander and Jil Sander continues a story in which passion plays a bigger role than the cool style of their clothes suggests. It was in the eventful year 1968 when Heidemarie Jiline Sander planned a revolution in the Hamburg district of Pöseldorf. With her newly founded fashion label, the 25-year-old wanted to do things that cost little, have a simple cut and stand out from the fashionable frippery, as she called it. Good design for little money, the trained textile engineer thought, that should be possible. It didn't work, the production in India was a disaster. So Jil Sander changed her concept. Small quantities, fantastic quality and a reduced design was the formula that ultimately led to success. If not immediately. When Jil Sander presented her fashion in Paris in 1975, she was not yet able to inspire critics and colleagues. The cuts were too simple, the designs too cool, the fabrics too colorless. Compared to the opulence, playfulness and joy of color of other fashion designers, the purism of the North Germans simply seemed too simple. It was not understood that the designer had made a philosophy out of reduction, that she held back because fashion shouldn't kill the wearer. Their approach in general: Jil Sander never wanted to be fashionable in the classic sense, did not want to promote a piece of clothing today that would be out tomorrow. For the designer, on the other hand, only what survived was of value. For me, modern is fashion, a piece of clothing is perfect when nothing can be left out. Jil Sander Beautifully simple: the current spring collection from Jil Sander

38 The designer was way ahead of her time with her image of women. this is how it once defined, in which the individual finds his or her strengths. Just like the women who, according to Jil Sander, take their role in society as a matter of course without long discussions about emancipation. With this image of women, the designer was, as in many others, way ahead of her time. Sander's first success wasn't with her fashion, but with the perfume that she launched in 1979. She even held out her face for this: Since the young company did not have the money to bind a top model exclusively to the brand for years, the beautiful designer herself posed for the slightly bitter scent. Not an easy decision for a woman who tends to avoid the limelight, but a very good one. In the end, the posters not only showed a very attractive face, but also that the designer really stands behind her product. The perfume poured money into the company's coffers and popularized Jil Sander. At the beginning of the eighties, her fashion finally caught on. Career women in particular liked Jil Sander's onion look, as they were able to combine the various, high-quality individual parts wonderfully, which was not only very practical on business trips. Even on the catwalks, people finally realized what Jil Sander was aiming for and were euphoric. At the Milan fashion shows it was soon said: Jil Sander is hot, Armani is not. Photos: Jil Sander

39 Fashion Between 1978 and 1982, Jil-Sander-Mode's sales doubled almost annually. In the mid-eighties, her collections were already hanging in 130 boutiques and stores from Munich to Los Angeles, from Zurich to Tokyo. The German was even ennobled as queen: she was called Queen of Less because of her purism, Queen of Kashmir because of the high quality of her materials. The fashion magazine Vogue ranked Jil Sander among the ten best designers in the world. The Paris newspaper France-Soir even mentioned her in the same breath as a great lady of fashion: Coco Chanel is dead, long live Jil Sander. The comparison was by no means exaggerated. Coco Chanel, too, once reinvented women, relying on their strength and femininity. Coco Chanel also loved understatement and was a master at understatement. And like the French woman, who with the Chanel costume had created an unmistakable piece of clothing that became her trademark, Jil Sander also had one for which she became famous: the trouser suit, which is strongly tailored to body proportions. The first half of the 90s is considered to be the heyday of the Jil Sander brand and soon the company had reached a size that the designer alone could hardly manage alongside her creative work. The company also needed money to expand. Shortly before the turn of the millennium, Sander therefore sold the majority of their company to the Italian Prada Group. She retained responsibility for the collections. However, not for long: after just a few months, Jil Sander fell out with the CEO Patrizio Bertelli, husband of Prada heiress Miuccia Prada, and left the company that bears her name in a dispute. Sander's successor could only fail. Straight suicide is the job, Milan Vukmirovic was warned by friends and colleagues. The French took it anyway, experimented with the brand and brought colors and a new liveliness to the minimalist Sander style. His designs were praised by critics, but reviled by customers. They weren't from Jil Sander and that was noticeable. No matter what I do, whether a bottle or a bag, a shoe or a jacket, Sander once explained, I put my way of thinking and living, that is, my soul, into it, and I believe that it communicates and is the deep foundation of my success. Without Jil Sander, Jil Sander was already in the red in 2001. Three years after the breakup, Bertelli therefore sought reconciliation with the company founder, who had done everything possible since her retirement, except for fashion: She had sailed the Caribbean, traveled to Russia and Iran and had fun at parties. After many lengthy phone calls with Bertelli, Jil Sander actually returned to her label in the spring of 2003 and, six months later, sent eleven girls in sensitively designed dresses down the catwalk. The break had obviously done Sander's fashion good. The press found it to be lively and more playful, colorful and relaxed than ever. After Sander's return, the company's sales grew by four percent. But it was not enough for the economic turnaround. Also, things did not go well for long between the North German and the Italian company boss. There was another heated argument, Sander and Bertelli simply couldn't find a common line. After only 18 months, Sander left the company she founded Prada again in November 2004. The Belgian menswear designer Raf Simons said that politicians of my age only mature for higher tasks. Jil Sander will succeed Sanders and a little later that the entire production will be transferred to Italy. But none of these measures was able to bring the label back on the road to success. And so in February 2006 Prada sold Jil Sander to the British financial investor Change Capital Partners, who two years later transferred its shares to a Japanese company, Onward Holdings Co., Ltd. and its European subsidiary Gibo Co. S.p.A. Jil Sander and the Japanese market were more than a logical connection, as the simple, elegant design has a long tradition in Japan. The designer Jil Sander also soon worked there: from 2009 to 2011 she designed the + J collection for the Uniqlo label. The prices for the pieces were low, but they were worthy of prizes: the 2010 winter collection won the Brit Insurance Design Award in the Fashion category, one of the most prestigious design awards in the world. And then in the spring of 2012 something happened that hardly anyone had expected. Jil Sander returned to her label again at the age of 68. At the men's fashion shows in Milan at the end of June 2012, she presented the first collection. When asked about her age, she said: I am in a phase of life in which politicians only mature for higher tasks. So you can be curious. When Coco Chanel made her comeback at 71, it should mark the high point of her work. And after all, Jil Sander has quite a few things in common with Coco.

42 Expert tip on herb care You should always have more than just a pot of your favorite herbs on the windowsill. Chives, for example, thrive better if they are not cut off piece by piece but rather shortened completely and then grow back in peace. Basil is an exception: it is best to pinch off individual leaves from the sides of the branches, but never all at once or from just one branch. Above all, you should never cut the tips of the leaves from above, recommends Gabriele Kurz, top chef, successful cookbook author and avowed fan of herbs. Her herb garden is currently located in Dubai, where Kurz, as Resort Wellbeing Chef in the luxury resort Madinat Jumeirah, is responsible for the healthy lines of all restaurants. Her book My Herbal Kitchen, from which some of the recipes published here are taken, won the World Cookbook Award 2011 in Paris.

48 Technology No more tape clutter Whether long-playing records, Super 8 films, slides or documents: everything can be digitized these days. ici! reveals how to do it and how to keep track of the flood of data Text: Bernd Ratmeyer Illustration: Bente Schipp We are well set up in the comfort zone of the digital world, we stream music tracks, download MP3 files, watch films on online video stores. Anyone who grew up with the Internet may consider DVDs, CDs or even records to be relics of a bygone era. But there is a generation that wanders between the two worlds: young enough not to be fascinated by the possibilities of digital cultural dissemination and reception. But too old to get rid of the remnants of analogue products entirely. In plain language: the shelves of many music and film lovers bend under the weight of video cassettes, records and possibly even Super 8 films that have been accumulated over decades. If you want to create order in your collection and space on the shelves, you should dare to move from the analog to the digital world. Vinyl goes MP3 It is now easy to transfer records to hard drives, for example. In order to turn the vinyl treasures into space-saving and easy-to-organize data bundles, you of course need a record player and a PC. Both are connected with a phono USB adapter. The necessary software is usually included. The adapter converts the analog signals from the disk into zeros and ones and stores them on the hard disk. Disadvantage of this inexpensive entry (the adapters are available from around 25 euros) into the digital music archive: It costs time, because the records are transferred at a speed of 1: 1. So if you have several hundred records in your closet, you will have to do a few days. Sorting on the hard drive also requires patience, since every title and every artist has to be entered. But if you get involved, you will have sorted your musical treasures dust-free and space-saving in the end. If the old turntable has already given its time, it is worth purchasing a new device with a built-in CD burner, there is no need to install software, the records are immediately available on CD and can be conveniently loaded onto the PC. From video cassette to DVD If you want to save music from the past into the digital now, but also VHS cassettes, the process is similar: so-called analog-digital converters are available for 30 to 80 euros and are connected between the video recorder and PC. They convert the analog video signal into a digital format. Depending on the software supplied, it is possible to post-process the film material: This can be used to intensify colors and contrasts and to delete advertising blocks from TV recordings. The product Rescue Your Video Cassettes from the software developer Magix is ​​popular; Converter and software cost around 60 euros as a package. Old cine films hold treasures of a completely different kind. The Super 8 cine film format was a technical innovation from Kodak in 1965. The easy-to-use technology opened up undreamt-of possibilities for home filmmakers and hobby directors. But wedding and vacation film rolls have long been gathering dust on the shelf, and setting up the screen and projector is an archaic ritual of a bygone era. Those who want to back up these private memories themselves today, unlike records and video cassettes, are faced with considerable hardware and software costs. But the market reacts. Numerous service providers now offer their know-how and equipment. The valuable celluloid should be sent to companies like film-retter.de, 8mm-dvd.de, medienrettung.de or digitalspezialist.com. There, employees clean the material, cement fragile glue areas and transfer it to a digital camera. You will then receive the original, including the digitized version, back on DVD by post. The costs are between one and two euros per minute. On request, the digital technology also provides the necessary quantum of nostalgia: If you want, you can equip the DVD with a sound track that imitates the hum of the old projector. Order in the chaos of data Not only music and films, but also old slides, books and newspaper articles can be digitized. But how do you manage the huge amounts of data? Anyone who already works with digital source material will find willing helpers in mostly pre-installed programs such as Windows Media Player or iTunes, who search all folders on the hard drive for music and films and organize them automatically by artist, title or genre. But if more and more material is added from the analog archive over time, even the hardest-working archivist quickly loses the overview. Software retrofitting is recommended here. Numerous, often free programs from the Internet provide a better overview. A software called All My Movies has proven itself in the field of film for several years. It lists all the films on the hard drive and completes this personal catalog with information from the Internet. 48 1/13
