Fall Picks by Kianne Frankfurtby Anna Kopito | 23.11.14
Find out what our Telavivian girls are thinking this fall. This time we have talked to Kianne Frankfurt, who is currently studying fashion design at Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Art.
Telavivian: What are you looking forward to this fall?
Kianne Frankfurt: For me this autumn is all about inspiration. Fall is my favourite time of year and galleries and museums seem to be the best way of spending a rainy Tel Aviv afternoon. “Dream weavers” is an upcoming exhibition in Beit Hatfutsot featuring everyone from Jewish tailors to top fashion designers. Dvir Gallery’s second floor exhibition is featuring Douglas Gordon’s point blank – a light installation/sculpture made of electric wire and coloured bulbs. Also in the autumn, the Helena Rubinstein garden becomes a gloomy inspiration for a walk on long friday evening.
What are you wearing this fall?
For me fall is all about layering and similar colour blocks, grey on black on navy, wide hats and big chunky scarfs.
When getting dressed, what inspires you?
When I get dressed I tend to focus on the sense I want to represent. Most days are a mix of school, work, or meetings so I need to feel comfortable but powerful at the same time. I find that mens black shoes do the trick even while wearing my pyjamas.
How would you describe the optimal wardrobe for the Telavivian woman?
The Telavivian woman is diverse but the optimal wardrobe should contain quality key items that are timeless: a buttoned white shirt, leather jacket, chunky wool coat and black jeans are musthaves in every closet.
