Objects of Affection: Jacket
Inspiration: Objects are powerful. They produce culture. They create or transform our behaviors. We explore our history through them. They help us understand who we were, who we are, and who we may become. They stimulate our feelings. They bring out memories. They make us happy, unhappy, confident, insecure, safe, comfortable. Creating an object is a journey. It is a learning. It is an experience which transforms us. We appreciate objects. An object is a design and we appreciate design. In the collection “Objects of Affection” we explore and present some of the objects we hold dear to ourselves for their design and stories.
Description: “Objects of Affection: Jacket” is an illustration of a vintage jacket by Zeki Triko, an established brand in Turkey. However, it is one of the earliest pieces of this brand. Even though we don’t know the date of production, it is probably from 50 years ago. It was given as a present to Şeyda, our art director, by one of our family friends, who thought that now it was time for a new young adult to wear it.
