Market of Stars - "Token of Love" Kimono -Artist Jacket
This exclusive piece is part of Moonlight Mile — our luxurious line of limited edition printed silk blends.
There are few things dearer to us here at Market of Stars then our loved ones! So when we discovered this beautiful and rare black-and-white embroidered panel from 1821 we fell for it instantly. Thoughtfully stitched by artist Agnes Dickinson, it features the words “Token of Love” and “Those absent yet beloved” in amongst the intricate birds, wreaths and flowers. We married this charming panel with another heart-centred work of art — a French woodcut made by Lucienne Marchal from the early 1930’s. Featuring a ribboned heart with the words (in French) “I hope you get everything your heart desires this year”, it contains sweet little images representing wishes — including travel, friendship, jewelry, adventure, family, gardens and love. Lucienne and Agnes were centuries apart — but we think they make an amazing match ;)
Like all of our Artist Jackets, it can be worn done up or open, but our favourite way to wear it is with the belt tied loosely at the back.
Made from delicate, luxurious silk and wood/bamboo viscose. Please take care with jewellery and handbags while wearing.
Measures 73 cm across the back (underarm to underarm) and 78 cm in length.
Our model Cassie (with curly blond hair) is 6’, and our model Morgan (with long red hair), is 5’6” for reference.
