[CHISO GALLERY] White – The Color of alpha

The color of white has been captivating us, perhaps since the immemorial days.

Together with the pure beauty of the colour itself that we attract, we also extend this beauty to the metaphoric expression.

While we appreciate the purity and innocence of white, we are also deeply moved by the moment when finding the white turning into different color, forming a new beauty.

Perhaps it is because, we found a pure joy by witnessing the color of alpha, the new beauty that white can create, as well as embracing the hope for its future growth.

On this exhibition, it would not only include the clothing from the Chiso’s collection such as for newborn and wedding ceremony, but also the designs and artworks from the past pieces created by Chiso.

For the exhibition of clothing for newborns and weddings, you may find various thoughts and feelings that could have occurred within the person wearing in the clothing on the major life events.
And for the exhibition of designs on the other hands, it would show the whole process until completing one piece from a plain white paper.
Kimono in the Edo era made from white fabric would also be exhibited.

We would be pleased if you would enjoy the beauty of white that created by Chiso.
