Textile, Swing, 2012
This is a Textile. It was designed by Akira Minagawa and made for minä perhonen. It is dated 2012 and we acquired it in 2018. Its medium is 100% linen and its technique is printed on plain weave. It is a part of the Textiles department.
Hand-drawn stripes are a signature of Akira Minagawa’s work, their irregularity bringing lightness and whimsy to an otherwise rigid design. In Swing, a pattern of blue and white stripes devolves into dangling ribbons which appear to curl and bounce near the hem. The large-scale screen print is an engineered border pattern, which was used for both a dress and a skirt in minä perhonen’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection.
