Yumi Katsura is thrilled to announce her new Couture collection « Bonds » influenced by famous Japanese and European painters such as Hokusai, Monet, Van Gogh and Rivière. Ambassador of these two cultures she builds a bridge between far East and West with her 2018 Spring/Summer collection.
Yumi Katsura pays a tribute to the famous painter Hukosai and the traditional Japanese art «Ukiyo-e». These Japanese woodblock prints greatly inspired western painting. Seduced by the magic of the master painters Yumi Katsura catches the miracle of nature. Once again wildlife is omnipresent in her creations. Full of prints and life, this collection honors the silk dyeing traditional technique called Yuzen.
Deeply concerned by the Japanese “savoir-faire“, Yumi Katsura preserves and enhances ancestral methods of creation. Her fabrics are smooth, graceful, sophisticated and they magnificently highlight a dazzling range of colors.
Rooted in Paris fashion, the shapes of the fashion house symbolize her identity. Yumi Katsura offers us a journey where tradition and modernity merge in a poetic embrace.
