Radical, romantic and rebellious, the origin of the shirt dates back to the Middle Ages. Initially used as a second skin, worn under regular garments, it was
the most intimate piece of clothing. As depicted in medieval art, the shirt was only uncovered on humble
characters, such as shepherds, prisoners, and sinners. Worn by the freedom fighters in the early nineteenth
century, it became a symbol of revolution and evolved
into an essential part of women's daily casual outfit.
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.
