Sinology Sunday: July 19, 2015

This week, we take move on in the timeline towards the next “look” which comes about at Song dynasty-inspired clothing from Traditional Clothing Studio 傳統服飾工作室.  It is notable that they sometimes work with Mr. Chen’s Chinese Photo Studio 陳先生的復古照相館 so you may see some of their clothes resurface again in future pictures.  As you can see, we are back to the beauty standard of women being thin.  It is also notable that this is when foot binding starts rising in prominence.  More pictures below the cut.

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.
