Shirt - Blanco


Formal shirt made from a white-on-white keffiyeh with olive wood buttons.


A white shirt is an important part of the universal default aesthetics of well-dressed, reliable, conscious professionals in any situation, whether it is business, politics, universities, talk shows, cultural biennales or cocktail parties. This tailor-made garment is fragile, due to the available machinery and the material. The techniques used to produce it are the same as those used in the traditional keffiyeh, which doesn’t have a “blanco” meaning. Nevertheless, ‘Blanco’ gives you authority because of its social and political symbolism, but at the same time it also demands cautious behaviour.
