Present and Past

The new spring 2020 collection revolves around the Kimono and the significance behind the traditional outfit. Kimono have been regarded as great works of art reflecting the artistic and cultural evolution in Japan.

This signature centuries-old garment, the national dress of Japan, has evolved over time along with the Japanese society. We have looked at the rich textile heritage of Japan to recreates it’s evolution.

Inspired by the kimono from different periods, our new collection captures influences from periods of the Japanese history. Several designs, such as Ami, Hisa and Matsuko, are reminiscent of the traditional and rustic kimonosof the 5th century before the Chinese and Korean influences. Other designs – for example, Sakiko – are inspired in the Meisen period when the yarns were printed before weaving to reach the well-known Ikat effect, while other fabrics – Kimi and Hayami – are inspired by the kimonos of the 1920s-30s with the influences of Art Deco and Russian avant-garde.
