New in the store: Hand-made hand-dyed kimonos

Handmade, Lovely Materials

With every piece of thread dyed individually, then hand-woven to make intricate organic patterns, each of these kimonos and work vests is a unique work of folk-art. For an updated look more NYC than old-world Japan, pair with a skinny belt and a contrasting pattern, as in this look from the Sartorialist.

Pops of color.

Mixed patterns.

Rich, handmade indigo dyes.

Talk about dramatic silhouettes.


More beautiful detailing than you can shake a stick at.

Pop by the store at 126 East State Street on the Ithaca Commons to check them out! We also have a few listed among the treasures in ourĀ Etsy store, if you, like me, enjoy shopping for beautiful clothing while eating pecan pie on the couch on fall days.

Purple Rain at Petrune

1970-1980, 1980-1990, Rock and Roll, Windows

Here at Petrune, we love to indulge our inner vintage rock star. This week’s window is a tribute to one of our favorite albums of all time Purple Rain by Prince. From the purple jumpsuit to the purple bicycle, this window is a show-stopper!

If you are like us and can’t say no to a costume (and are of age), head to Silky Jones this Thursday night, September 15th, for an amazing Bowie versus Prince Costume Dance Party! Be sure to drop by Petrune to check out the window and pick out your costume!
