Color and Graphic Contrast in Traditional Albanian Wardrobe

Ervin Meniko


In this study, we will discuss one of the most popular issues and with great interest in the Albanian material culture. At the function, for the changes to this study are considered the developing background of the traditional clothing and morphological changes that it has undergone from one era to another. Firstly, our study concentrates in the historical durability of dressing in order to understand how much original is that which is presented in the analysis and secondly, its value in terms of figurative form and its aesthetic values. It is interesting to note that within the stylistic values of material culture are shown varicolored qualities of the visual language and its adapting forms. It is for this reason that the analysis on Albanian traditional dressing with its expressive appearance is based on the examples that historically is living longer and as such has deep costumographic content. Dressing with xhubleta is one of the most typical cases in the history of the Albanian wardrobe in territory of north Albania. Another wearing with such an open historic scope was the kilt, which originally stretched in all Albanian territory. In the 20th century, dressing with the kilt and xhubleta were replaced by the casual suit.

Keywords: wardrobe, traditional, Albanian, kilt, xhubleta, etc.
