Description

A women's silk kimono in a vibrant botanical pattern.

  • The Vienna Secession was a reaction to the conservative artistic institutions in Vienna at the end of the 19th century, and spread rapidly via media such as catalogs and magazines. These certainly reached Japan, as is evidenced by the Secession’s influence on the Japanese design of the era.
  • This beautiful kimono shares many of the design elements used in Adolf Böhm-Saal's stained glass windows at the former mansion of Otto Wagner, built in 1905, pictured here.
