Breaks in Continuity, 2016
Unlike a jacket or a pair of pants, a scarf does not convey the way it is closed through its form. A scarf usually has no applications which mimic a body shape, like buttons or sleeves. Therefore it does not indicate how to drape this usually rectangular piece on the body. Through its formal simplicity the scarf forces the wearer to develop an individual way of wearing it which often indicates different social conventions. It makes us speculate about the personality of the wearer, maybe more than any other garment.Closure is in fact a very rich aspect of dress; but, as such, it becomes an index of temperament, not a sign. –Roland BarthesBreaks In Continuity comments on the conventional ways of wearing a scarf. Through minimal interventions the items break adopted habits and create a multitude of new shapes and surprisingly diverse variants of wear.
