Presented at Maison&Objet 2023, the Kimono collection is part of the Tale Books Collection project. This collection of stories, travels and cultures reinterprets the most iconic themes of decorative art, exploring distinct creative spheres.
Kimono pays homage to Japanese iconography, tradition and its imaginative creativity.
Cherry branches, wisteria, Ginkgo biloba plants and warmly coloured foliage recall spring and autumn colours, evoking the Momijigari and Hanami traditions contemplating the changing seasons.
Shinto shrines, 19th-century Zen gardens, the flight of herons and koi carp, a symbol of perseverance, complete Bottegal's imagery.
Gold, silver, taupe, white and black form the background of the hand-drawn designs. Vivid bright red, purple, blue, and green enrich the collection, creating a combination of oriental atmospheres, plays of chiaroscuro and three-dimensional effects.
