The paper collages by artist Peter Clark are a wonderful recreation of hip clothing styles using vintage manuscripts and maps. These extraordinary art pieces not only bring together geography with fashion, but they do so with plenty of charm.

These three-dimensional garments sport unique prints and cuts thanks to the recyclable materials used to create them. From leather jackets to suits, these one-of-a-kind outfits should definitely stay away from the iron. The paper gives these pieces a lot of texture and personality, making them palpable and abundant in artistic characteristics. Also, Clark skillfully manipulates the maps’ patterns and designs to beautifully tailor each of the outfits.

The 3D collages by Peter Clark are playful and full of convenient wrinkles that don’t need to be taken to the dry cleaner.
