Uniform Shirt, The Pont Neuf Wrapped

This is a Uniform shirt. It was designed by Willi Smith and made for WilliWear Productions.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Mark Bozek as part of Willi Smith: Street Couture.

Its medium is cotton. It is a part of the department.


Workwear and uniform dress inspired Smith throughout his career, appearing in his early collections for Digits Sportswear, costumes for performances, WilliWear’s emphasis on utility, and in sketchbook references of industrial aprons and ranch wear from the American West.
