Pleiades S/S19 collection inspired by mourning ceremonies in Korea, often related to the colour of ‘white’, and songs for dead souls.
Back in 1982, an ancient burial site was found inside a cave, with a trace of chrysanthemums on top of the dead boy’s body.
Historically, white flowers and images of birds were used during the ceremony, in a wish their loved ones are led to a happy afterlife.
Butterfly motifs are used to translate this theme into the collection, while soft colours and the whimsical tone also add on to the lightness.
