Waistcoat Corselet (torso defense) with Pauldrons (shoulder defenses), for use in combat on ship. Germany, 1571.
This corselet is the only surviving armor in the world identified as having been made in Cologne—a leading center of armor production in Europe. Its construction, which imitates a civilian waistcoat, and the composition of its etched ornamentation suggest some of the stylistic influences from Italian armor that often passed through Cologne on the way to England and the Low Countries.Philadelphia Museum Art
Sawa Takai FW2013
Sawa Takai explores deliberate layering through addition and subtraction. Engineered melton wool double-paneling functions as protective sheaths symbolizing strength and concealment. These heavy layers are contrasted by removed panels and split seams in soft flannel revealing interior linings and representing vulnerability and exposure. Together these themes play on Takai’s reflections on metropolitan women who must preserve their inner tenderness while projecting strength to the world to survive.
