On the Silk Road, the short-volume silhouettes take from kimonos and turning collars jackets the refined looks of dreaming travelers. An adjusted, almost military cut balances a soft and tied indolence. The copper velvet, the sea-blue moleskin, the bronze sheet, the mouse grey wool, the putty cotton confront with details and completion, smoked muslin and printed pinstripes.
In laid with old gold and platinum, a kimono jacket is shaped with graphic stripes. The linings blank or clash.
Thick fading grain, tea coloured cordage in frogs, embroidered mirrors set the refined tone for a subtle accessorizing. Large edged headgear, between Stenson and Borsalino, outline the traveler profile, as a fermata. Bejeweled with coral and stone, seaweed or chiffon, black, ink and sand end this elegance.
A more ethnic pillbox hat creates havoc for panoplies from afar… Some inked scarves, ending in copper, a complete a nomadic wardrobe.
