WORK disposable collars

MATERIALS white cotton and gold leaf

 

DESCRIPTION Collars play an important role in the history of clothing. They are placed under the clothing as protection (excessive wear and washing). They represented social status (the bigger it was the more important the user) and they revealed how clean were the bodies. They could be pulled out of the upper parts of the male and female clothing, and they were hold by two pins. When in contact with the neck, the “dispensable collars” work as a border frame, enhancing the whiteness and resistance of the fabric in contrast with the golden leaf interpreting each necklace’s drawing. This piece is part of the collection of Ar.Co - Center of Art and visual communication *Picture by João Cavaleiro
