Abstract:Many computer vision applications in the fashion domain require solving tasks where complex relationships between images, such as the notion of item compatibility, are being learned. We take a metric learning approach to representing compatibility between pairs of items. First, we introduce a model that learns compatibility relationships in dedicated embedding subspaces dependent on item type, which results in significant gains on established fashion compatibility prediction tasks. Second, we present a method for learning a richer notion of compatibility across multiple compatibility conditions whose contributions are learned as a latent variable, which provides better performance on established tasks while requiring fewer embedding subspaces to be learned. Third, we make the first published attempt at diagnosing the salient features of a pair of items that make them compatible, and linking them to human-interpretable concepts. Finally, we demonstrate that our representation of outfits enables diverse, novel, and practically-useful visual search queries for the fashion domain, and results in semantically-meaningful style summaries with several directions for future work.
