Each piece is an extraordinary testament to how the past can combine with the future in fashion. As the original press release states “The driving force behind Reveal Project is the spirit and passion of the Japanese craftsmen.
This line came to fruition through the support of Kimuta Senshow a renowned hand drawn Kyo-Yuzen kimono producer, who is based in Kyoto.
Creating each design and embellishment involves more than fourteen manufacturing processes including conceptualization, rough drawing, masking, brush dyeing and illustrations.”
This seasons pieces can be worn for many occasions from day to night, combined with the simplest of jeans or black trousers through to an elaborate dinner shirt or slim tuxedo.
Anyone can take these collectors items of beauty and add to their wardrobe to wear forever.
After that there is no doubt that friends and relatives will be squabbling over who inherits these masterpieces of Japanese craftsmanship and elegance.
