After a leisurely breakfast, we decided to venture outside the studio today and
go into Kansas City (the Kansas side) to visit Asiatica. Known for their clothing constructed of vintage kimono material,
Asiatica is an all round visual feast.
I fell in love with these glass houses by Katsuya Ohigita
and couldn't resist taking this shot of Pam and I in mirror as she tried on that lovely scarf.
The true visual feast at Asiatica can be found behind the showroom wall. Row upon row of the vintage kimono cloth is bound and organized by color and pattern, waiting to create exquisite clothing.
The simple marks caught my eye
as did these reds.
But it was this red that captured my heart. It's safely packed and ready to fly back to the east coast tomorrow morning.
Many thanks to Pam and Mike for allowing me to invade again and to my husband, John, for understanding the importance of this week.
And thanks as well to the studio muses who always inspire and whose whispers become great what ifs.
