Description

Emotional simplicity is quite attractive in a modern life. Previous studies on clothing simplicity have described the visual simplicity of clothing with the characteristics of individual design elements such as lines, colors and textiles. However, the observer perceives the visual object from an integrated perspective not only from a detailed point of view. Therefore, a holistic approach to visual characteristics of clothing appearance is required. This study is a comprehensive a analysis of how the visual characteristics of 20th century western women’s clothing are expressed by the interaction of the simplicity factors that are components of S-Polygon. For this purpose, a total of 400 fashion images to represent each decade of 20th century was chosen from 11 published materials related to the history and culture of clothes as well as Internet sites that included samsungdesign.net, firstview.com, and redlist.com. Analyzing the visual characteristics of western women's clothing in 20th century using the S-Polygon makes it possible to interpret changes in women's clothing in terms of simplicity. And it is possible to understand the relationship between factors that constitute the visual simplicity of the clothing and to identify various characteristics of visual simplicity shown in clothing. A comparison and analysis between multiple designers in terms of simplicity, using the S-Polygon will make it possible to propose new ways to design.
