Artistry in Silk: The Kimono of Itchiku Kubota

Japan’s most iconic garment gets the star treatment thanks to artist Itchiku Kubota. Acclaimed for reviving a long-lost 16th-century dyeing and drawing technique called tsujigahana, Kubota imprints 43 flowing robes with dreamy landscapes and motifs.

Symphony of Light, a meditation on Fall and Winter, comprises a series of kimono embellished with a cloudy mountain range. To represent the waning sunlight, Kubota imbues the fabric with a sensational gradient that goes from flushed red to the palest winter shades.
