A Story of the Japanese Imperial Seal
Artisanal Designs with Inspirations from Japan and the Kimono
The Chrysanthemum was a symbol of the Japanese emperor and imperial family more than a thousand and three hundred years ago. Today it continues to be the National icon of Japanese culture used in passports and coins.
In this campaign, we feature three colours - Red, White, Pink of the Chrysanthemum as statement hair accessories. The modern day Chrysanthemum colours have specific meaning.
Red has romantic connotations, while white ones are used in funerals and grave site. Pink adopts the generic meaning of happiness and longevity.
Shot in Singapore at the Japanese Cemetry Park, tombstones of Japanese soldiers (during World War Two) can be seen in the backdrop.
