Veil and Reveal

Brit van Nerven has asked women which parts of their bodies they are happy to reveal and which parts they would rather cover, and why. Opinions varied: from completely covered to completely revealing and everything in between. Veil and Reveal explores the nuances between these very personal demands. This modular collection of loose items has been based on the female body. They are literally ‘pieces of clothing’ in different kinds of fabric and different shades of black, that can be combined according to the user’s wishes. “Veil and Reveal is the representation of my research, through which I want to attach new values to fashion, ” Van Nerven says.
