Sinology Sunday: May 1, 2016

This week, we look at Ming dynasty-inspired clothing from Jinse Yizhuang 锦瑟衣庄.

More below the cut.

Hanfu groups seem to work together so I apologize ahead of time in case there are any repeats.  Also, please understand that sorting Hanfu by era can be hard due to similar styles carrying over into different eras, lack of historical evidence or knowledge, and various other factors.

The following are some links that may help you get some background information.  Please let us know in the comment section if there are any other sites you may be able to recommend for more pictures.

  1. I was in Hangzhou and Suzhou last month. I saw quite a few girls/women were wearing a modernized version of Ming Dynasty style clothing. They were very stylish and not at all out of place seeing them walking down the street. Can’t say the same for modernized Sui/Tang styles.
