Junie Moon Dollywear collaboration with SILVER BUTTERFLY

This months Junie Moon Dollywear dress set is a special collaboration with Japanese doll artist SILVER BUTTERFLY.

These soft and gorgeous dresses are all hand sewn by the artists. You will marvel at the detail and craftsmanship of these tiny dresses.

Here’s a message from SILVER BUTTERFLY:

We’ve created two soft and gentle dresses.

There are two styles of dresses we made. They are sleeveless with pin-tucked bodices. The translucency of the tulle and luster of the overlaying fabric gives a delicate and soft feeling.
The short dress has a ribbon tie in the back, while the long dress ties in the front. Mixing textures of the fabrics has a subtle but romantic look.

We hope you enjoy these dresses!

There are two styles to chose from; long or short.

About the Artist: maman

LELE Junie Moon is a lifestyle shop in Shinjuku, Japan. We curate a variety of goods and specialize in handmade goods by local Japanese artists. We celebrate Mori Girl and romantic accessories to fit a natural and sweet lifestyle.

We are pleased to introduce you to LELE artist maman. Her handmade bags and pouches are made from vintage fabrics. The beautiful details and sweet styling feel nostalgic and romantic.

We sat down for an interview with maman to find out more about her inspiration and vision as an artist.

Q: What is your inspiration for your bags?
A:  We work in an area with a lot of greenery and you can distinctly feel the four seasons, from the window you can see trees, mountains, flowers, the environment itself is a huge inspiration.

Q: How long have you been creating these pieces?
A:  It has been about 6 years since we’ve started maman.  My 3 daughters have graduated from college, I used to make clothes and bags for them when they were little.

Q: How would you want people to live with your bags? To dress up or day to day wear?
A:  With a detailed bag like the house bag, it would be great to take for a special occasion.  The fabric bags or the pochette would be more for a casual day.  These bags are durable and have heard people taking maman bags on daily commutes.  A lot of people tend to comment on these bags when people carry them around, that is one aspect that drives me to make these bags.

Q: If you had one wish, what would that be?
A: I would like to stay healthy and if I’m able to make these bags for a little longer, I’ll be very happy. 

Thank you to maman for this wonderful interview!

You can find her bags and pouches at the LELE Junie Moon page. All of these goods are available only from Junie Moon!
