T'ang fashions in this style remind me of Persian dress. Persianate culture and style was very widespread after the Seljuks conquered Persia. Even Persian style arms and armor was prevalent from Eastern Europe to China.

China always had a back and forth with Persia since Han times, and the time China referred to them as Anxi which referred to the Arsacid / Parthian empire. This continued throughout silk road trading with the later Sassanian empire during China's era of division until Sui and Tang again whereby Sassanids fell. There's quite a number of Persian graves in Sui China and showed evidence of a large enclave living in Chang An.
