Contemporary crepe fabric kimono featuring fresh pink and pale grey maple leaf design on a white background, with crisp white grosgrain collar, part lined with delicately embossed silk.
The Maple tree is seen as the epitome of elegance, grace and beauty in Japan, where it is a popular subject in classical art and poetry. Known as ‘keade’, which translates to frog’s hands, and ‘momiji’, or baby’s hands, this (usually crimson) leaf design on a kimono could symbolize the start of Autumn, and that this garment is meant to be worn at the end of Summer.
Ideal for lounging around during lockdown, kimonos also make stylish dressing gowns. Their exquisite fabrics and textile designs mean they are wearable works of art, perfect for when galleries and museums reopen and arty events recommence, or as decorative artworks for the home.
One size 8-14. 48 inches/122 long. Very good vintage condition, just a couple of very small - almost invisible - spots on the inside. Matching belt available, upon request.
