    Translated literally as “thing to wear," the Kimono is instantly recognizable as the epitome of Japanese fashion. Traditional Japanese long sleeved outer robes with varying lengths of wide sleeves are made in a wide array of fabrics and patterns. Worn by men and women of all ages, Kimonos range from extremely formal to casual and can be either a rainbow of dazzling colors and artistry or the simplest woven cotton. Antique and vintage examples can be highly collectible or cherished family heirlooms; framed, used as wall-hangings, and even for political propaganda, or simply worn in the boudoir: Kimonos are truly a unique art form.

    This week show us your kimonos of all types, haoris (short jacket), obis, wide sash belts inspired by obis, kimono sleeved blouses, sweaters and dresses too!
