GINGA

銀河 (jap.) – galaxy, milky way
Texture of this cowl has been largely inspired by the Moon’s surface. Craters of the dead volcanoes, lava flows, dark spots for sea, when looking up at the Moon – one can only imagine.
Curls in the cowl forms voluminous, rounded and drapey section, while tucked basketweave is graphic and rigid. Juxtaposition of these two textures helps achieve balance while creating a compelling one of a kind accessory.
