images from "pattern magic"
what is this? is this a line or a style?
is a style!
I found it in a book with japanese pattern.
Romantic and stark
Thanks for sharing!
BTW,is there an exact definition of this style?
I think Japanese structural cuts/lines are some of the hardest to make wearable. The lines are very severe but that make the garment very modern. The sculptural 3D shapes from the 1st image remind me of the Balenciaga collection with the various sizes of the heart.
^ I agree 100%. I love Japanese design, some of the best in the world. Welcome to tFS Giang needs help.
So pretty <3
Wow those designs are amazing. I would totally wear the top in the 3rd photo.
Amazing 3-D texture! For the first picture, was it sewn to be like that simply with cloth or are there cubes inside to support it?
you can iron on something called interfacing to the fabric, which will give it support^. it has an adhesive that stiffens
There are more pictures from this book in this other thread, in Art&Design forum:
Creative Pattern Making
have a look
i love this book
i think japanese design is often associated with the "less is more" approach. almost to say minimalist and where the material and form speak for itself
it's hard to pinpoint since if you look at japanese history, the aesthetic changes several times
you have one called, "wabi sabi". part of it was about time, a stress on watching something naturally age and to see the beauty of that.. the rust on metal, bark rotting, etc.
and there was also "miyabi" (click to see the thread)
a lot of it you can't really define using words i think
but when you see it again and again, you instantly "know"
impeccable! love the second one.
they're all so gorgeous. I want, I want.
Beautiful! They are images from a book by Tomoko Nakamichi, Pattern Magic Vol.1. She's a professor at the Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo.
Here is Vol. 2 :(books.hounavi.com)
^That is simply amazing! It looks so flawlessly done!
it's very architectural. I like that it fuses the gap between clothing and art.
i wanted to bring in some other work to show how the style permeates not just in to clothes..
but also lamps
