Kanbun kosode
was a kimono style of dramatic asymmetricalimagery that trailed in bold fashion from right shoulderto lower left hem. Genroku was a brief time in Japanesehistory (1688–1704) that represented the zenith of thisvisual drama. I have followed that aesthetic in this kimonowith stylized cloud forms—a nature reference that spansthe seasons—but I’ve taken artistic license by sweeping mydiagonal in the other direction.Te blue ribbon yarn I used for this kimono is reminiscent of indigo, but of a lightened, faded shade. Indigo is a commondyestu for the peasantry, but the glossy sheen of the ribbonyarn produces a garment suitable for royalty—a poetic para-dox. Te cloud imagery, worked in crochet-chain embroidery,is worked mostly on the back. While this surface design isdecidedly Japanese, you may opt for a plain kimono. Tisyarn produces a knitted fabric of such glorious drape that itis a work of art even without embellishment.
