The Armor Costume for a Character

This armor was conceived for a modern version of a classic Shakespeare. Made it with fully recycled materials, mixes metallic corset nerves with leather leggings overlapping layers denoting the various faces assumed by Richard III during the theater play. From a modernist vision in terms of fabric and materials to traditional use of technique and structure, the piece remains the soul of an antique armor. It reflects the vulnerability of the King and the man who coexists inside the character, the world of specters, deaths, and feelings surrounding his life.
