Symbolism and design in Japan
I lived in Japan for many years; it is my home away from home. A Japanese aesthetic deeply informs much of red flower’s feel. In creating red flower japan, our first treatment collection, the design and graphics express the deep spiritual, emotional, symbolic, health, and ceremonial aspects of traditional onsen bathing. I have been to more than a hundred onsen, studied tea ceremony and ikebana, worked with the best graphic designers at shiseido and endlessly wandered the streets of tokyo, everywhere absorbing the beauty and power of “Japan”.
