Another trend that is slowly making a come back is the kimono jacket. Browsing the stores I could see them jackets everywhere! So I took the opportunity to dig out my vintage kimono collection and picked out this one for a spin yesterday.
When I went crazy over Haori kimonos a couple of years back, I went on a buying rampage and bought a few vintage original kimonos from Japan. These beauties came from the 50s, post World War 2. I love how fine the workmanship is, the material and detailing.. so well made! Well, to tell you the truth I hardly wear them but they are quite versatile, I discovered. Not only they make a good jacket, they also can double up as beach cover-ups! Plus they are very original that I was stopped many times by curious strangers inquiring about them.
So what's your take on kimono trend? Will we be seeing you in one this season?
