Radical, romantic and rebellious, the origin of the shirt dates back to the Middle Ages, initially used as a second skin, worn under the regular garments, it was the most intimate piece of clothing. In medieval
artworks, one can notice that it is only uncovered, on
humble characters, such as shepherds, prisoners, and sinners. After worn by freedom fighters as a symbol of revolution, in the early nineteenth century, the shirt became a visible part of women's daily outfit and began to be considered casual wear.
Carrying an understated and effortlessly confident look and a chic - yet - rebellious city feel, the shirt is
an essential and central piece in the modern woman's
wardrobe and her practical fast paced life.
Our archive is a tribute to the shirt, an anthology and a retrospection of its heterogeneous nature from a contemporary point of view. A retort to the fuss of fashion.
