4 bags for a journey through the seasons in Japan
TSUBAKI x BLACK (Camellia)
The Camellia is a tree I started to love once I spent a winter in Japan. Its pink flowers bloom in a lot of places from December, putting a touch of color in the grayscale map landscape.
When the flap is open, you can see Camellia drawn in golden yellow on black cotton, putting a touch of color to this black bag as Camellia do with wintery landscapes.
This bag is a basic which you can wear with colorful as well as sober clothes.
SUISEN x MUSTARD (Daffodil)
Spring in Japan sounds like the classic sakura (cherry blossoms) landscape picture. For me, spring is coming when daffodil start to bloom along roads.
I used to pick daffodils with my grand mother when I was a child, and when I saw Daffodils for the first time in Japan I felt nostalgic remembering this flower picking sessions each year. For me, Daffodil is the starting point of all the beautiful flowers of spring.
The mustard color of the bags is for the yellow flowers blooming after a cold winter making us realize spring is here.
AJISAI x KHAKI (Hydrangea)
I am often asked if seasons are the same in France and in Japan, and I always answer that they are quite close, except Japan has a rainy season, during which Hydrangeas are in full bloom.
During this period of time, they can be found in any nature spot like parks, temples and shrines, gardens and so on.
Hydrangea is for me the flower announcing a hot and humid summer to come.
For the bag itself, I chose a Khaki green because summer landscapes in Japan are mainly made of many shades of green, that beautifully contrast with the purple hydrangeas drawn in the bag.
HOZUKI x CARMINE RED (Physalis)
Physalis, also called « Japanese lantern », are those beautiful plants with fruits enclosed in an orange papery husk that dries when autumn comes, revealing small orange balls within a white and gentle cage.
The Hozuki bag is carmine red on the outside, color of passion, referring to another nickname given in French « love in a cage », as physalis comes from Greek for « protection ».
Inside the bag can be found variations of Physalis through the seasons.
