The shirt dates back to the Middle Ages. It was initially used as underwear worn by men as a second skin. It was a plain, undyed garment, without buttons on the front. Likewise the historic women's chemise, it was worn under regular garments. In medieval artworks, the shirt is only uncovered, on humble characters, such as shepherds, prisoners, and penitents. In the early nineteenth century, shirts became more visible and began to be considered casual wear.
Our archive is a tribute to the shirt, an anthology and a retrospection of its androgynous and heterogeneous nature from a contemporary point of view. A retort to the fuss of fashion.
Giving comfort, casual and elegant look, understated
and confident feel at the same time, the shirt is an essential and central piece in the modern woman's
wardrobe and her practical fast paced life.
