WEAR-ABLE ART. Post Tradition presents CHORDA. A collection of multifunctional body accessories made of metallic fibre cords. Handmade in Italy.
CHORDA – THE COLLECTION
Chorda consists of cord accessories in varied colour combinations creating a contrasting striped effect. Each piece is defined by a number and not by name because the same piece can be worn in different ways. As a handpiece or a neckpiece, as a neckpiece or a belt, for example. The collection also includes four body-harnesses and a rigid collar. Chorda accessories can be wrapped, adjusted, tightened and loosened on the body and can be worn in different ways every time. This is why we call them multifunctional accessories! Each accessory is extremely light, soft and flexible and has been created to wrap around and adapt to the natural body-lines The clasp allows easy and practical adjustment. Each Chorda piece can be worn all year round: on bare skin, with tops and T-shirts, or over heavy clothing, such as sweaters or coats. Chorda’s aim is to promote individual interpretation.
CHORDA – THE PRODUCTION
Chorda is made of very light and flexible metal fibres (just like natural rope). Each Chorda piece is woven on a special machine, created exclusively for its production. Subtle copper yarns are then silver- plated and enamelled in different colours. The inner core is made of polyamide that renders the piece elastic and very resistant. Other special production processes give the metal threads an absolute softness. The rigid elements – the clasp, the adjustment chains, the rope end pieces – are made of brushed brass and are galvanized for a fine finish. The gold and rosé versions are 23kt and 18k gold-plated respectively.
CHORDA – THE MOOD
The collection draws inspiration from Japanese bondage, whilst deliberately taking a step back from it. Chorda is, in fact, an urban, chic and minimal accessory. Post Tradition has chosen not to use leather or any other material of animal origin. A conscious choice, as well as an aesthetic one: our desire is to transform the concept of body harness into a less aggressive version, with a less explicit connotation, suitable for everyday life. Chorda is for independent and non-conformist women of all ages, who love to customize their style and enhance their own individuality. High-quality materials and workmanship are used for a collection that does not adhere to any seasonal trend but aims to create a timeless aesthetic, with a clean and minimal, but at the same time, immediate and sophisticated design. Chorda accessories can be worn every day in different ways, embracing the body, wrapped around clothes, matching all kinds of outfits and personal styles, from essential to refined as well as those that are more creative. All Chorda accessories come in one (adjustable) size and can be purchased online in our e-shop. All of the 10 Chorda pieces are available in seven different colour combinations
