Are there any similarities between fashion and new music? In an interview published on the 24th of March 2018 in the German Sueddeutsche Zeitung, the famous fashion designer Jil Sander says: “The zeitgeist manifests in details and proportions! It is possible to design new fashion season by season even if one has always the same attitude. One can not avoid that after a certain time it looks old. The reason for this: unconsciously our eyes are very well in differentiating the usual from the surprising new.” Is it possible to make a comparison between fashion and new music: What eyes in fashion are ears in music? Our ears are also very well in differentiating the usual from the surprising new.
