Like the window piece, I feel like this hearkens back to an earlier era, except with modern fashion.. only this time stylized Chinese art rather than (I think) French oils.

i love the parasoul (? lol, no idea how to spell that) it's very brightly colored and has a sort of Asian theme to it, in my opinion. it's a beautiful picture.
