Seventeenth-century artisan male doublet

The reconstruction of an early modern doublet project combined hands-on experimentation, archival research and investigation of visual and material evidence in order to bring one of our artisan’s outfits to ‘life.’ The imitation fashion piece is made of black stamped mock velvet and it was recorded in an inventory of a Florentine waterseller named Francesco Ristori who died in 1631.

Created in collaboration with London School of Historical Dress
