edition N° 1, 6 of 15
Vintage kimono. 100% silk.
Inspired by the importance of ceremony in our lives. A ceremony allows us to acknowledge a transition or a rite of passage – a new beginning or sometimes, as a conclusion to an event in our lives.
The pattern is cut from a 'Houmongi' 訪問着, a semi-formal visiting wear kimono that is typically worn during special occasions, family celebrations and ceremonies. This kimono is adorned with one of the most popularly depicted flowers 'Kiku' 菊 chrysanthemum. It is an auspicious symbol of beauty, longevity and is featured on the imperial seal of Japan.
Detailed with a center front placket with shell buttons, front patch pockets, back yoke with an inverted pleat, side paneling, and single-button cuffs.
Every piece is one of a kind and hand-numbered. All wear and idiosyncrasies are unique to the textile. Handcrafted by artisans in New York City.
