SOIE:LABO, Wabi Sabi and Silk Flowers
The artist Miyuki Nakajima embodies the spirit of wabi-sabi when creating her artificial silk flowers. The concept, which allows for the expression of beauty within imperfection is the Japanese artist’s underpinning philosophy, having launched her own brand SOIE:LABO in 2013 where her silk flower creations evolve with the seasons.
Three years after its inception, the designer is now releasing a new collection, employing techniques drawn from savoir-faire of Japanese artisans and painters such as sumi, traditional ink and iwa enogu, a paint made from natural minerals. She has also previously collaborated with the brand Divka during Tokyo Fashion Week, and is now based in Paris where she presented her first exhibition in the gardens of the Palais Royal.
