We've made fringe kimonos in almost every bold colour and print under the sun, but this season we wanted to create something a bit softer, a bit gentler.
This kimono is made of 100% silk chiffon that was digitally printed with custom graphics which we created in-house.
We created this graphic using an image of a block printed cotton tapestry, combined with two other images. On the front, we took part of an 18th century painting of a Bateleur, which is a breed of eagle most commonly found in Africa. The word "bateleur" is French for "street performer". The back features two goddesses found on the cover of a turn of the 20th century illustration made for the cover of a book called "Metamorfoze" by M. Louis Couperus, illustration by Jan Toorop.The original images are courtesy of the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam) collection.
The digitally printed 100% silk chiffon panels are combined with soft wool/spandex blend jersey, used for the sleeves and collar. The bottom edge is finished in cream lattice fringe, which we had custom made in Montreal.

We created this piece as part of a collaboration with the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. The museum was completely...
