Feelin' the KIMONO












I don't know what it is, but I am feeling the Kimono right now. There are so many traditional stories behind the kimono, that trigger me. The way how to dress, the meaning of the of the different ways how to wear them. Most traditional japanese Kimono's are given from mother to daughter, as a precious gift and stay in the family for many generations.
Kimono-like tops and wrap dresses are my personal favorite. I have a weakness for the strong colors on especially silk and the old fashioned flower patterns. Worn in a western world, this way of dressing get a bit hippy-like, I am a fan!
