Hand-spun pongee silk (tsumugi) woven with stencil-printed weft threads. Japan, Taisho period, 1912-26
All of the Kimono here can be found in the book, Fashioning Kimono: Dress and Modernity in Twentieth-Century Japan. They were shown at the Victoria and Albert Museum in the Toshiba Gallery of Japanese Art in 2005 and 2006, on loan from the collection ofJeffrey Montgomery, a prominent collector of Japanese folk art.
This vintage piece is very short, as you can tell by the proportions of the collar (which is usually about 2” thick) and the length of the garment—many Taisho-period kimono were made for women less than 5’ tall.
The colors here are still exceptionally beautiful despite their age. Turquoise, red and white on a brownish-green background give a playful and bold appearance and the tiny black specks near the feather motif add visual depth.
I chose this particular kimono out of the list because of its motif, which is yabane, arrow feathers. This is particularly appropriate for winter, New Year’s and auspicious events like a wedding.
this next song is for the girl yelling at the balcony - it’s called ‘We Hate You, Please Die’
To all three of you who wanted ponies. You can share.
