Abstract [en]

Looking at defining factors of garment, means to look at garments that has the possibility to be reduced to a extent and would still be seen as a specific garment. So, which garments are we so familiar with, both visually and the meaning, to the extent that we only need a small amount of information in order to recognise and understand it? This work investigates defining factors in garments that would be enough to describe and recognise a certain type of garment. The aim of this work is to explore the use of details as a way to define a garment and to question our learnt knowledge and presumption of what we refer to as a certain type of garment. The work is built on the objectification of a garment and is explored through the methods of abstraction and reduction. The result from this investigation consists of physical examles and conclusions in regards to the approached methods and knowledge about archetypal garments. What is presentend in this thesis, is nine examples of how one could describe a garment. Not what is the right way, but an alternative of combinations and the use of details as a refernce to the original garment we have knowledge about.
