Description

A women's silk kimono in a striking black and white floral pattern.

  • Led by the architect Josef Hoffmann and associates such as Dagobert Peche and Koloman Moser, the Wiener Werkstätte was one of the longest-lasting design movements of the 20th century. As a precursor of Art Deco and the International Style, it drew from movements such as the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau, as well as from traditional folk art.
  • This striking kimono echoes Peche's 'spiky baroque' style inspired by folk art and using flowers, animals and human figures as decorative motifs, as seen in his wallpaper and lighting designs, pictured here.
