Stepanova's Constructivist Clothes Design (1923)
Varvara Stepanova (1894-1954) was the wife of Alexander Rodchenko, and a major constructivist artist and designer in her own right. In this 1923 photograph she poses in sports clothes of her own design. Such clothes were meant to fit in with the general ethos to create simple and functional, yet aesthetically pleasing quotidian objects for the general public. Unfortunately, most of these projects never made it off the drawing board into mass production, either for technical, economic, or political reasons.
