The image shows a traditional Korean garment known as a "Hanbok". This particular hanbok appears to be of a type worn by women, characterized by a short jacket (jeogori) and a wrap-around skirt (chima).
The jacket has wide, flowing sleeves with white cuffs, and striking stripes of pink, purple and deeper red across the upper parts. The main body of the jacket and skirt is an aqua or light turquoise color, featuring a subtle woven pattern. The lower hem of the skirt is a bold orange-red color, offering a strong contrast to the lighter shades above. The jacket is fastened at the front with a red ribbon (otgoreum) that forms a bow around the neckline.
The hanbok is displayed against a plain white background, emphasizing its bright colors and the elegant simplicity of its design. This constitutes both a cultural attire and, possibly, an artefact, reflecting the history and aesthetics of Korean clothing tradition.
