Fringe Kimono - Silk Chiffon, The Threatened Swan

This fringe kimono cardigan is a showstopper...definitely not for someone who wants to blend in.

We created this piece as part of a collaboration with the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. The museum has been completely renovated in 2013, and as part of the revamp they have digitized a large part of their collection and created a website where the images are available for public use. A whole museums worth of beautiful imagery to use in our was an offer we couldn't refuse!

Our designer Angie used two separate images to create this piece. The front is a section of an elaborate cabinet, made some time between 1660-1670, artisan unknown. This cabinet is made of various woods including coniferous, oak, maple and ebony and juniper. It in elaborately inlaid with ivory and ebony, olive and violet wood, lapis lazuli and gilded with silver and copper.

The back section features an amazing oil painting by Jan Asselijn (ca. 1650) called "The Threatened Swan".

The front and back panels are made of digitally printed 100% silk chiffon panels. Silky smooth jersey is used for the sleeves and collar. The bottom edge of the top is finished in long black fringe, which we had custom made right here in Montreal.

This cardigan looks great layered over a little black dress with heels, or equally good with jeans, a crisp button up top and boots. A few of our customers have suggested it could be extremely decadent loungewear/lingerie layering...which we fully support! Either way, it's a statement piece that you can come back to season after season.
