Modern kimono

Monday, 26 November 2012

I blogged some time ago about how great it is to see kimono being worn in a modern way. Hair ornaments, often reflecting the seasons are a big part of Japanese traditional dress. These modern Tokyo girls take it to a new level.

Yukata, the more informal kimono and it's lovely indigo hues.


Dior from a few years ago, with an amazing Hokusai inspired dress

Even dogs are following the trend

And if you'd like to read more, the V&A kimono book.
