中原淳一 Junichi Nakahara  : un album sur Flickr

中原淳一 Junichi Nakahara (1913 - 1988), Kawaga Prefecture Junichi Nakahara was one of the top leaders in fashion illustration during the first half of the 1900's and his artwork of wide eyed women is often referred to as the forerunner of manga. Junichi illustrated not only women in kimono, with an obvious Taisho / Art Deco feel to them, he also did many illustrations of stylishly dressed women in yofuku (Western clothing). I personally find his colourful and dynamic kimono styling to be a major inspiration to my own kimono closet and style, and never grow tired of looking at his illustrations. I hope that by sharing postcard scans, they will be of inspiration to others also.
