The maple tree is a symbol deeply entrenched in the visual lexicon of Japan and Shintoism, specifically. Associated with fall and the turn- ing of the seasons, the maple leaf symbolises, peace and harmony with nature.
This motif is achieved through fine dyed line- work. Some of the leaves have been coloured in with a watercolour style dyeing technique. This grey silk has a slightly lavender tone.
This bomber is made of salvaged vintage kimono silk. Oversized, boyfriend fit. Slit pockets at side seam. Fully-lined.To create the ‘Chiara’ bomber, Arcana NYC worked with a supplier in Japan to source the vintage kimono silk. Each bolt only contains enough fabric for one jacket so each bomber is one-of-a-kind.
