The Chrysalid collection was inspired by Memoirs of a Geisha, the novel by American author Arthur Golden, and mostly influenced by the several stages of training which a girl needs to reach to become the perfectly skilled and elegant hostess. In a collection designed for the three ages of a woman’s life (childhood, adolescence and adulthood), Iwana explores colours, prints and fabrics, mostly wool and silk, while letting her fascination with Japan and nature reflect on the drawing of her prints and her (re)vision of the kimono. The title of this first collection refers to the similarity Iwana found between the life-cycle of a geisha and of a butterfly, choosing to highlight the transitional and most transforming state: the chrysalid.
