Sinology Sunday: January 8, 2017


This week, we take a look into more reconstructions from around the Song Dynasty.  Pictures this week come from Clothing and Happiness 裝束與樂舞.  Images will be labeled with their approximate social class.

More pictures 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 like the commoner with what I’ll call Aspirational Shoes. I don’t know that those actually would have been aspirational, but I choose to interpret them that way because I dig the resultant connotations.
