Miriam Parkman x Indigofera Midnight Dazzler Wool Jacket
The Midnight Dazzler pattern described by Miriam Parkman "At midnight The sky is blue, the water still The mountain mirrors in the surface, the surface mirrors the sky The sun just set now rises again - blushing on Ringkallen mountain ridge”
Countless early June nights spent looking over Sörleviken bay is what named and inspired this design. The pattern originated from the swedish traditional pattern “Blixtrölakan” in the ”water design” - ”rölakan” the name for this technique in Swedish and “blixt” meaning lightning. So, lightning rods flashing before your eyes like the movement of water on a still surface = blixtrölakan. This pattern was commonly found on carriage bedding and house textiles in Sweden’s wealthy southern parts during the 1700s to early 1900s and was 100% a way of showing off your skill and wealth to your neighbors (I’m from the north but the fact I use this technique for this collection adds a small but loving hint towards Mats and Pontus of Indigofera, who both grew up in these areas of Sweden!). Influenced by goods sold by traders and merchants from the Mediterranean areas as well as Northern Africa and the Bysantin empire, this technique once merged with Nordic folk aesthetics and became part of our heritage. My “Midnight Dazzler” mixes the experience of an early summer High Coast night in the 21st century with traditions of the past, as well as the “Eye Dazzler” designs of the Navajo tradition which uses the same technique."
The Mountain Dazzler Wool Jacket is truly a unique product. Cut and sewn of the Norwegian wool blanket with the same name making the pattern on each jacket different! and if that's not unique enough, all the fringes are woven by hand by Miriam herself in her Stockholm studio. The jacket is also fully lined with a quilted viscose twill in a beautiful turquoise color, it closes with a sturdy YKK brass zipper and there are two front pockets as well. This special garment was only made in a limited amount and there was only 17 jackets made.
Miriam is wearing a size small and measures 160 cm long, chest 90 cm, waist 68 cm and hipps 111 cm.
