Nippon!! x4Studies in Reconciliation
-------------It'd be best to download it for a magnified image, especially for Autumn and Winter cause I didn't post them individually!
It's done! I bypassed doing individual for the last two cause I just wanted to post it already.Winter print: [link]
From left to right, top to bottom: Haru, Natsu, Aki, Fuyu
, the 4 seasons (in Japanese)
When I was sort of coming up with this, I thought of exploring a few concepts for each season, for example,
Spring - structure (the brown grills thing) and pattern/print (which I had to adapt seamlessly from the picture)
Summer - wraps (although present in other seasons) and ropes
Autumn - Tailoring and structure
Winter - opacity (sheer), textures, patterns (the "fur" with the black stuff at the bottom is supposed to sort of resemble those tree branches with heaps of snow on it)fun fact!
: I was hesitant to call this TOTALLY japanese inspired because halfway through I ran into some Korean and Chinese hairstyles probably, and the black shoulders
on some pieces were inspired by panda ears. ufu.
Well, please give honest criticism/comments
, since this is a study!
