So Not Ordinary

I got a postcard yesterday from Asiatica announcing their upcoming trunk shows. I always keep their postcards for a while because they are so interesting and well designed. 

The one from spring, 2010 has a shirt with its arms folded in front as if its wearer left it in charge while stepping away for a break. 

The fabric is silk with ribbed rectangles in pale green, blue and lavender.  It is an eastern version of a preppy windowpane dress shirt. 

Asiatica  makes clothes from deconstructed antique kimonos and new fabric designed by Reiko Sudo for Nuno, a Japanese textile corporation. Their clothes look and feel fabulous – as if you are to the manor born.

If you are not in the market for investment clothes shopping, check out their Japanese pottery and other art objects, jewelry and scarfs. Hmmm, you just never know what you will find in your own backyard.
