NEW YORK (February 14, 2011)—In conjunction with the Neue Galerie’s upcoming exhibition, “Vienna 1900,” the museum Design Shop has collaborated with renowned textile designer Madeline Weinrib to create an exclusive kimono. Tailored from a hand-woven ikat fabric, the silk/cotton kimono is inspired by turn-of-the-century Austrian fashion, and conveys the Eastern influence on early 20th-century Viennese design.
The Opium pattern, an exclusive to the Neue Galerie, is woven into the fabric over the course of many months from resist-dyed silk threads. Incorporating Weinrib’s gorgeously suffused palette, the design unites her sensibility as a painter with centuries-old modes of craftsmanship. Each kimono is a hand-sewn collectible, available at the Neue Galerie Design Shop for $1,800.
Two colorways: poppy or black and white
70% silk/30% cotton ikat
100% silk black grosgrain trim and sash
