    THE DP SPIRIT — ginkgo

    DOMINIQUE PICQUIER x UNITED ARROWS

    DOMINIQUE PICQUIER x UNITED ARROWS

         A dream of Japan runs through Dominique Picquier's collections. Each drawing is accompanied by a short poem, reverence to the haikus we love. This tribute to Japan has become a conversation that continues today.

         In 2018 United Arrows chose Dominique Picquier for a capsule collection of printed cotton shirts for men.  After a first fall collection in 2019, the new spring 2020 collection is in preparation.

    Daisy Marguerite Menshirt

         Designed in Paris, it is only sold in a selection of stores in Japan, these images are an invitation to travel!

         The shirts are part of the United Arrows Green Label Relaxing collection which proposes a casual fashion, with simple cuts and beautiful materials, a certain Japanese chic of today.

         You can visit their online store here : https://store.united-arrows.co.jp/shop/glr/

         For the Autumn 2019 collection we have chosen classic designs from our collections, the Ginkgo, symbol of our love of Japan, the Daisy, emblem of our brand and finally a new floral design.

         United Arrows made the choice of colors and placements ; a deep navy blue, a light grey and a dark khaki : the result is a collection of shirts that we would all like to wear!

         The bag featured is our TOTE Liseron kaki, a practical and elegant tote, that you can buy here :

    All these quotes are taken from the book Ranger, une pratique Zen from Japanese monk MASUNO Shunmyo.

    It was edited in France by Éditions Philippe Picquier as part of the Ginkgo Collection, a collection of books which all bear Dominique Picquier's fabric on their covers and which all help to make your life better, inspired by Japanese and Korean wisdom.

    A TRIBUTE TO NATURE IN THE CITY

    A TRIBUTE TO NATURE IN THE CITY

    Ginkgo tree

    Ginkgo
    Under the favourable auspices
    of half-linen’s beige cotton and natural linen
    the Ginkgo leaves sway and whirl.
    And these leaves have been quietly put together and reconstructed ;
    Ruffled prints on soft, flowing and smooth cloth.
    Full of multicoloured leaves and branches which, in autumn, start
    believing in the intensity of gold.
    And there are also interlacing fans suspended in the air,
    that seem recollections of idealized trees.
    Legendary Ginkgo.

    Ginkgo print fabric violet
    Ginkgo
    Patchworks harmonizing brown wefts and beige cloth.
    Brushless paintings or written words.
    Tracks and scumble, a slight sign of birds ;
    Leaves and interlaces on indigo, crimson, and gilded walls ;
    Or on the flowing and warm sand of a ruffled, printed, half-linen cloth.
    A spread-out softness of cotton and linen.
     But, isn’t the tree’s shadow lovelier than the tree itself ?
