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.
“Bamboo trees wearing snow yet standing still. Motifs on both front and back layers of the vase overlap and the landscape of bamboo forest expands with wide and deep perspective.
The checkered pattern placed in the zigzag shape shows daring sense of Edo Kimono.
Small leafs and flowers decorated with gold puts an accent on the straight line composition.”
