meisen kimono. designs from 1930s - 1950s. Haruko Watanabe.
Denim yukata and kimono are not a new idea but I thought denim would be a really hot textile to wear in the sun. With the silvery strawberry obi it has a soft, classic homey look, but wouldn’t it be a little heavy? And why does this model look so bemused? Cotton, 9980 yen
