Nachdem ich jetzt schon spätantik, frühe deutsche Renaissance und spätes deutsches Mittelalter (sowie ein wenig American Civil War) ausprobiert habe, ist es Zeit für etwas Neues. Japanisch habe ich mir zunächst angesehen, gefällt mir aber nicht so doll. Giano brachte mich auf chinesisch, Song-Dynastie. Da gäbe es viele Bildquellen. Na, immerhin ein Anfang. Mal sehen, was es da so an Infos im Netz gibt:

The Tang Dynasty
The Tang Dynasty was the most thriving, prosperous, splendid, and glorious period of ancient Chinese culture and art. The style of women’s clothing during the Tang dynasty is the most outstanding in China’s history. Tang dynasty attire had many different styles, and was ever changing, which enabled the look of the Tang dynasty style to remain elegant, noble and poised, and forever unique and amazing. The costumes of the Tang dynasty are like exotic flowers in Chinese history. The quality of the material was particularly fine and delicate, and the decorations lustrous.
Song Dynasty clothing can be divided into three categories of style. One was designed for the empress, the noble concubines, and females of all levels of “government uses”; another style called “formal clothes” was for ordinary people; and one style was casual for daily use.

Und Text: Song Dynasty clothing can be divided into three categories of style. One was designed for the empress, the noble concubines, and females of all levels of “government uses”; another style called “formal clothes” was for ordinary people; and one style was casual for daily use. The clothing designed for Song Dynasty government officials was extremely luxurious, and even common people dressed very fastidiously. Not only were the fabrics elegant, but also the hair styles were very special. Some were braided and hung down on the shoulder, while some were like cloud lights with delicate bands supporting the golden phoenix. People without much money used paper decorations in their hair, fragrance on the body, and wore shoes with embroidered flowers.
