On the Silk Road, silhouettes with shortened volumes borrow from kimonos and twist-neck jackets some refined aspects of dream travellers. An almost military and fitted cut compensates their soft and knotted casualness.
Brassy velvet, navy moleskin, bronze sheet, mouse woolly, sealant cotton, come face to face with details and finishing touches, smoky muslin and printed fine cord.
Embossed with antique gold and platinum, a kimono jacket is made with graphical strips. Sparkling or plain garment linings. Degraded twill tape, tea coloured frog closures, embroidered mirrors reflect the refined subtlety of accessories.
Wide-brimmed hats, something between Stenson and Borsalino, override, as a culmination point, the profile of the traveller. Jewelled with of coral and stones, algae or rags, the black colour, some ink and sand, complete this elegant style.
A more ethnical toque suddenly upsets panoplies arrived from distant countries. A few printed scarves with copper tips now complete this nomad wardrobe copper, complete a mobile wardrobe.
