Hiromi Matsuo depicts women in Japanese and Western clothing with a retro and classic world view. This book is a collection of her works composed of work paintings such as costume paintings and works created for exhibitions, plus original works including those published in coterie magazines.
She grasps the changes in fashion and lifestyle culture from the Meiji, Taisho, and early Showa periods, adds her own modern interpretations and arrangements to them, and considers designs and decorations appropriate to these changes. Focusing on Matsuo’s creations, this book introduces the design know-how that makes retro-modern women more attractive, with explanations by the artist herself.
