Clear crystal, black lacquer base
Kimono, the “Haute Couture” of Edo period is not mere clothing but a work of art with extremely rich expression and fine technique. Baccarat dedicated its best skill and creativity with respect to celebrating the Japanese culture and history.
“Edo Collection” was created as a new encounter between Baccarat and Japan.
The motifs were chosen from antique Kimonos from Edo era kept by the J. Front Retailing Archive Museum in Kyoto. The motifs express good fortune with traditional symbolism and with surprisingly modern taste. They tell the timeless spirit of celebration.
“Flourishing bloom of flowers are dynamically drawn as they are exposing fresh scents. The motif is from Furisode (Kimono with long sleeves traditionally worn by young lady before marriage) of mid-Edo period. The bouquet with Noshi (formal wrapping manner) symbolizes the pleasure of happy event.
Flowers and leafs expand fully on the crystal screen express bright season of summer.”
