■ The “4-Color Skirt”; 2 skirt styles and 20 colors to choose from!
TENNE HANDCRAFTED MODERN has been continuously making the popular “4-Color Skirt” for a long time.
The 4 layers of overlapping, see-through Egyptian cotton provides the skirt with a wide variety of faces.
Simply choose 4 colors from the selection of 20 available. All 4 colors play a leading role in the pattern created.
Then, choose which skirt style you prefer – there are 2 available; Flare Skirt and Long Skirt.
Although the Flare Skirt uses an abundance of material, it doesn’t take up too much room. It elegantly sways as you walk.
▲Front Colour：Flesh colour
A 19cm slit is incorporated into the side of the Long Skirt; thus meaning each overlaid color is ever-so-slightly visible. The Long Skirt has a more sophisticated appearance than that of the Flare Skirt.
▲Long, Front Colour：Matcha

■ "I want to fully appreciate the beautiful colors" (Staff: Watanabe)
“I have chosen the Long Skirt option as I usually wear pants and don’t feel too comfortable exposing my legs. Lots of the clothes I already own are either black or of calming colors. With this in mind, and with the aim of creating a skirt with beautiful colors, the first color I selected was Pale Pink. The other colors where simply selected due to the fact that they don’t conflict and match well with the Pale Pink.”
【Colour】①①Pink＋②②Natural（Group A)／❸❸Lavender＋❹❹Gray（Group B)
“I decided to have the leading baby pink color as the outermost layer①. The other 3 colors are in order of darkness; light to dark. I often wear Grey ❹; it is even possible to flip the skirt inside out❹ and wear it;”
■ "Ambitious, cheerful colors!" (Staff: Ishikawa)
"I don’t have a skirt of similar material in my wardrobe, so I wanted to go crazy and make it completely unique! I chose to use an energetic yellow (Yellow yolk) as the leading color.”
【Colour】①①Yellow Yolk＋②②Grey（Group A)／❸❸Lavendar＋❹❹Natural（Group B)
“If the mood takes me, I can also simply add my favorite color (blue-grey)! The other 2 colors are light colors which fit well with the overall look.”
■ "Reliable colors easily worn on daily basis" (Staff: Kawakami)
“I like the positioning of the gradation in the Long Skirt. I decided to play it safe and choose colors which can be easily worn on a daily basis. The first color I chose was Grey. I decided to make up the other 3 colors with warm beige colors upon realizing the delivery date would be during the fall.”
【色】①①Grey＋②②Light Grey（Group A)／❸❸Beige＋❹❹Navy（Group B)
"Primarily focusing on ①①GreyI ordered the other layers so as to create a soft, calming appearance. And I choose ❹❹Navy as inner colour."
■ "I like skirts of just the right length!" (Staff: Shimizu)）
"I chose a flare to fit my height (153cm tall) and I like the right knee length and the spread, so I chose a dark pink (Bordeaux) that looks nice, and just perfect for my shape."
【Colour】①Bordeaux＋②Baby Pink（Group A)／❸Grey＋❹Natural（Group B)
「❸and❹are in front, it's nice to see the pinks from the bottom. You can enjoy 4 patterns to fit your mood.
■ "I want a completely different skirt!" (Staff: Hamanaka)
“I choose the Long Skirt style as I like the way the underneath colors are slightly visible through the slit. I decided to take this opportunity to create a completely unique skirt upon looking at the color chart. I took the plunge and combined the easy-to-wear color ① ①Black, with ❹ ❹Yellow (Yellow Yolk).”
【Colour】①Black＋②Gray（Goup A)／❸Thin Gray＋❹Yellow Yolk（Group B)
“I chose 2 different greys which harmonize the strong black and yellow as the other 2 colors. I decided that the best order would be to put the yellow layer as the innermost layer, with the grey, light grey and black beautifully sitting on top.”
■ "I used my intuition and chose my 2 favorite colors" (Staff: Amano)
“I choose the Flare Skirt as I like the way the colors gently overlap as they sway. I simply chose 2 of my favorite colors to begin with (Grey and Matcha Green). I then just had to choose 2 other colors which would harmonize these and suit the color of clothes I normally wear.”
【Colour】①Gray＋②Beige（Group A)／❸Matcha＋❹Flesh（Group B)
"If you put beige under gray, you get a deep impression of color and a chic impression. Turn it over, put matcha under your skin and it's interesting to have a color change like iridescent, so in this order did"
Kei Tsushima, TENNE HANDCRAFTED MODERN
■ “Knowledge of 3-dimentional cutting provides the power to make clothes.”
“I have always liked clothing. I actually went to a Science University and found a job, but upon careful consideration I decided that I would be happier making clothes.
I learned how to make clothes under Chie Koike; the former President of the Bunka Fashion College who popularized 3-dimensional cutting.
The technique of applying material directly to a torso means that the clothes created have the figure and appearance as desired. I often fall back on this useful expertise today. It may only be a slight difference, but the wearer can feel a difference in the appearance and presence of an item made via this technique.
The experience gained learning under Chie Koike provided me with the valuable power to make clothes.” (Kei Tsushima)
TENNE started with 10 different types of clothing in 2004. It changed its brand name to TENNE HANDCRAFTED MODERN upon its 10th anniversary. Cherishing the unique craft of hand-making clothes, the items now available have been made even more sophisticated.
■ Pursuing “Weaving” and “Knitting”
The theme of TENNE HANDCRAFTED MODERN for Fall/Winter 2018 is “Weaving and Knitting”. These items do not merely collage fabric and knitwear; rather they effectively combine the 2 materials to create new, yet comfortable clothes.
