Our new Floral Mesh Collection combines delicate blossoms with our translucent mesh fabric. Inspired by the floral Kimono silks of her youth, Yumiko Takeshima’s newest Ready to Wear collection is available in a variety of women’s styles and feature Floral Rose and Floral Black Mesh panels and overlays.
"My great grandparents had a Kimono shop in rural Japan, where I grew up surrounded by beautiful floral Kimono silks. My parents would often take me to Kyoto where the Kimono fabrics were made and I’d just stare at the fabrics all day long. I was always fascinated to touch them. Of course my parents would say ‘Don’t touch them – they are very expensive!’ This definitely inspired me later in life to work intimately with fabric - touching and feeling it. My mom also practiced the art of Ikebana flower arrangement. I would watch her doing that for hours. It’s a really beautiful visual practice about simplicity and creating life that always tells a story." – Yumiko Takeshima
