BONSAI OF THE VANITIES


“A TREE THAT IS LEFT GROWING IN ITS NATURAL STATE IS A CRUDE THING. IT IS ONLY WHEN IT IS KEPT CLOSE TO HUMAN BEINGS WHO FASHION IT WITH LOVING CARE THAT ITS SHAPE AND STYLE ACQUIRE THE ABILITY TO MOVE ONE.” UTSUBO MONOGATARI

The fashioning of each Bonsai requires complete dedication; it is an exercise in ingenuity and discipline. Persuaded by these very principles, Jim Thompson followed his imagination all the way to the East. There with his customary verve he created an elegant world, innovating these concepts that inspired and dazzled him. His ingenuity, flair and vision ensured that his “Magnum Opus” withstood the test of time. For the Spring 2016 collection Ou Baholoyodhin has gone back to the Master and sought inspiration from the Jim Thompson archives and the private collection of the Royal Palace. Through a meticulous exploration of these troves has emerged the exquisitely crafted “Bonsai of the Vanities Collection”. In deference to the rigorous devotion to craftsmanship of preeminent artisans both past and present, Ou has created fabrics born from a unique symbiosis between East and West, using motifs that trace their lineage back to old Europe, yet imbued with a true veneration for the artistry of the East.
