The pictures show young women engaged in domestic activities wearing the reproduction of the yellow silk jacket that belonged to the Vermeer’s wife. This jacket appears in six of his paintings.
The woman is relaxed, the environment is reserved, but the objects suggest an intense modern life.
The tranquillity in this modern environment shows the gap between desire and reality.
The work also highlights the mass production of today's fashion, a trend that is only possible through the exploitation of labour in the poorest countries.
