Made in Japan

Led by Japanese artist Yukinori Maeda, Cosmic Wonder is a conceptual work of clothing, artwork, publishing and performance. With a deep understanding in natural materials and traditional techniques, garments are designed with a dedication to sustainability, inspired from the past and looking the future. The studio moved to a remote village in the mountainous region of Kyoto since 2016, which is designated as a National Preservation District of Historic Buildings. 

This dress is one of Cosmic Wonder's signature design. 

Ryukyu indigo, also called mountain indigo, is a perennial plant of the Acanthaceae.
Mud indigo is made by soaking indigo leaves in water and precipitating them into a muddy state. This technique has been passed down from generation to generation since ancient times. Indigo leaves are harvested twice a year. 
The garments are placed in a vat of fermented indigo leaves, exposed to water, and repeatedly dried in the sun. The resulting deep purple-blue colour, characteristic of the Okinawan climate, is a colour unique to Ryukyu indigo.
