Sinology Sunday: January 29, 2017

This week we explore Song dynasty clothing with Mr. Chen’s Chinese Photo Studio 陳先生的復古照相館.

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. The clothing is lovely, of course, but am I the only one vastly more intrigued by the setting this time?

    • Lovely costumes. The colors may be a bit too similar and too subdued in color for a photo spread. No one finds the pics a bit too small to see costume details?

      The scenery looks like Hangzhou to me. Xihu during hot months. At least for about half of the pics.
