Item details

This kimono is likely Heisei era, and may be may of a mixed fibre of silk and synthetic. It was purchased as a secondhand kimono, which do not come with labels as they are usually tailoured for the original buyer from a bolt of fabric. After many years, the fabric tore along a weak point at the back seam, where the kimono was folded repeatedly. The tear is roughly 6-8" long. As such, it may be taken apart for fabric use or resewn into another type of gauze garment.

Summer silks are a very thin weave to let air through when wearing. It is a beautiful garment and there is lots of fabric here! Most bolts are roughly 14" wide and sewn to shape with the excess tucked inside the seams. You get several yards in one kimono.

Kimono are becoming a trend outside of Japan for their robe-like quality and versatility. Kim Kardashian was recently photographed wearing one over a similarly-coloured outfit! You can too, and it's easy: find colours that work with this kimono (pale peach, off-white, mint, and butter yellow would be perfect!). Make sure the top is either long-sleeved enough to reach your wrists, or go short-sleeved. Some feminine details on top like a ruffled button-down is also a nice touch. Keep the bottom simple and slim (ie, not ruffled or 'puffy') to draw the eye up. Length doesn't matter; very long matches the length of the kimono, while shorter gives a pleasing contrast between the floating cape-like kimono and the outfit underneath. Now you know how to recreate that outfit with your own clothes!
