A Short History Of The Apron In Popular Culture








1. Yohji Yamamoto Fall/Winter 2013
2. Jean Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2004
3. Joseph Beuys Backrest For A Fine-Limbed Person, 1972

While icon of domestic (supression) and household chores of 1950s Germania/Americana, the apron bares both - a sensitive and brutal subtext, once put into male context. The butcher, the craftsman, the sculptor. Put shortly, the misunderstood artist on the threshold from genius to madness.
