By the power of the world wide web I recently came across the work of Takahashi Hiroko – an artist and designer in Japan who creates traditional Kimonos from her modern textile designs. A graduate of Tokyo University of the Arts, from apparel to home-wares, her eponymous brand is largely identified by her signature pattern work and her geometric and monochrome designs of circles, polka dots and stripes. And like how cool are these mannequins?! Honestly, truly. I’m definitely bumping up Japan on my #mustvisit travel wishlist.
You can check out more of her work on her website here. xo!
