31 Contemporary Kimono Couture Finds

From Killer Kimono Couture to Impermeable Dressing Gowns

— June 26, 2012 — Fashion
The traditional garb of the Japanese is revamped in the latest wave of contemporary kimono couture. It is no wonder that kimono means "thing to wear" in Japanese. Often, the kimono denotes a t-shaped, full-length robe with long sleeves worn by men, women and children; however, these fashionable finds use the robe as a jumping point of inspiration.

The kimono silhouette has such versatility, from avant-garde kimono shoots that channel edgier versions of the robe to cozy kimono-style coats that can fit anyone's wardrobe. Yet, the kimono trend goes beyond the shape, as brands such as Attic Japan began creating recycled kimono clutches. The accessories reuse the beautiful silk material of found vintage kimonos to create sustainable fashion. The ingenious designs are not only cute, but incredibly resourceful

The kimono proves the saying that everything comes back in fashion, since it has been around since the 5th century A.D.
