After Venice and Paris, the iconic Pasticcino Bag arrives in Japan for the third stage of the World Tour project, paying homage to the rich Japanese tradition in the art of fabrics and kimonos.

The new Pasticcino Bag Treasures of Japan collection presents a selection of clutches made with precious silk jacquards from the historical archives of Kawashima Selkon Textiles: a famous fabric company based in Kyoto, which has been manufacturing obi, traditional clothing and refined tapestries since 1843 , combining the know-how of its certified artisans with traditional techniques and innovative technologies.

The bags in this special edition are available in six color variations and two sizes, each wrapped in precious fabrics that vary from delicate pastel shades to gold, rust and caramel. Each fabric tells a story: the “Tree of Life” motif symbolizes fertility, flowers and birds come together to form a precious arabesque, the revisitation of a 1905 design harks back to imperial tradition, and a bouquet of peonies, roses and ranunculus it is both rich and delicate. The lining is in shaded fabric like the insides of kimonos.

The precious spheres of the boule closure are handmade by the artisans of the Nakamori-Kumihimo workshop, which has been producing obijime and haori cords since 1927. In 2001, one of the members of the Nakamori family received the Medal of Honor from the Japanese government for his outstanding contribution to the craft tradition for four generations. The spheres are made in the family workshop near Kyoto, with precious threads meticulously woven by hand, in contrasting shades to create graphic effects.

Delicate and bold, classic and contemporary: the two souls of Japan and Weekend Max Mara intertwine in each piece of this collection, recalling distant traditions and past times, always with an eye to the future.

The Pasticcino Bag Treasures of Japan will be available starting from June 2024, in all Weekend Max Mara stores and online on the weekendmaxmara.com website. Discover it through the pop up experience in Milan, at Palazzo Bovara, Corso Venezia 51, from 31 May to 10 June.
