BREAKS IN CONTINUITY

DESCRIPTION

»Breaks in continuity« is a series of scarves.

Other than a jacket or a pair of pants a scarf does not convey the way it is closed within its form (see "Dress Information Group" 2011).

Usually it has no applications (f.e. button) or a sleeve, which mimics a body shape, and therefore it does not give any concrete indications of how to drape this, usually rectangular piece, on the body.
Based on the simplicity of its form the scarf itself makes the wearer develop specific habits, sometimes indicating 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 Barthes)

The series „Breaks in continuity“ comments on the conventional ways of wearing a scarf. Through minimal interventions the items break with adopted habits and create a multitude of new shapes and surprisingly diverse variants of wear.

Available A/W 2016.
