Kintsugi (金継ぎ, きんつぎ, “golden joinery”), also known as Kintsukuroi (金繕い, きんつくろい, “golden repair”), is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum, a method similar to the maki-e technique. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.
The Japanese believe when something has suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful. It’s time we rethink our philosophy on aging.
We adore the idea of filling in the cracks on concrete floor.
and cracked tile.
Stronger and more beautiful, like this piece of Kintsugi pottery
and this kintsugi coffee table.
We are not only in love with look of kintsugi, but also what it represents, that imperfection is a form of freedom and it’s metaphor for life where “The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places”. -Ernest Hemmingway
The crop top seems to be a piece that women wear to show off their amazing abs, but if you don’t feel comfortable baring your belly, don’t fret- this lace bustier creates an illusion to refocus the eye to the most appealing, and smallest, part of your waist.
A modernized take on a crop top that we love is the lace bustier which was originated from the structured look of a form-fitting corset.
You can shop the lace bustier trend here at jacflash.net.
We suggest pairing it with high waisted pants/shorts with a cute leather or bomber jacket or with a great skirt, like the Jacflash Black Tulle Skirt or the Jacflash Mesh Black Slit Pencil Skirt for the perfect GNO!
Jacflash, Lace Bralette $45, available here.
