Here is a classically beautiful Japanese butterfly print scarf or kerchief by the famous designer, Junko Koshino. Butterflies are presented on a salmon colored field that is crimson bordered. It is signed, JUNKO KOSHINO on one corner. I honestly cannot tell if it is silk or the finest of cotton.
Measures 16.5 inches square. Condition is pristine; has been in storage since purchased in the 1980's.
History: Junko Koshino was born in 1939 into a family of designers in Osaka, Junko Koshino left Japan for Paris in the early 80s and formed her own company. She started showing garments that drew on the basic Kimono shape and soon began presenting her collections there. She has boutiques in Paris, New York, Shanghai and Singapore. Junko is interested in contrasts, curves and straight lines, light and dark, round and square, men and women. She claims opposites come together to form a whole. She has designed costumes for many opera and theater productions.
