The Kimono is a Japanese traditional garment. Today in Japan, it is worn for special occasions such as weddings, tea ceremonies, formal traditional events and funerals. An appropriate style and color of kimono is to be worn depending on the occasion and the person’s age and marital status.
I personally have always been fascinated by Geishas. I read the book „Memoirs of a Geisha“ by Arthur Golden and watched the movie, too. It is such a different world and culture that we in Europe simply can’t understand their way of living.
Some years ago i brought this dressing gown at H&M but didn’t thought about wearing it outdoors. But somehow my mind changed and I’m trying challange this piece a bit more. The pop of colour gave my rather simple outfit a new touch and mixing different fabrics is also a good idea for spring/summer outfit combinations. And remember, festival season is here!
