Modern Patterns of Japan by Pie Books
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A collection of patterns created by Yonagadou, such as papers, kimonos and vintage clothing. Throughout this book, readers will experience hundeds of colorful and lively patterns such as the aloof charm of chiyogami from the Showa period (1955-1965), the kimonos from the early days of the Showa period that convey a girlish heart and sense of fun, patterns from the 1960s and 1970s alive with their unique design and rhythmic colors; and the lining of a haori from the Taisho era with its bold and original sense of style. These are but some of the examples of the visuals in this compelling source book. Modern Patterns of Japan: Sweet & Nostalgic is an idea book that reveals the source of Yonagadou s inspiration for creating new products that are based on nostalgic products of the past."
