What happens when a valuable item is exposed to continuous wear?

Constant process of disappearing
is a visual study into attachment
to garments and their slow disappearing.

Materials and garment archetypes generally regarded as valuable collide with signs of wear and repair, revealing hints of workwear.

The garments that might at first seem pristine and precious are with a closer look revealed to be patched, dirty and worn out.

Real luxury lies in things that need to be perceived from close distance.
