theLOOKes… Kimono!

IMG_0640

Kimonos have been in the fashion limelight for a few years now, but they seem to be a key piece this past S/S season. This is a vintage Kimono given to my mother by a Japanese artist many years ago, and it has been hidden in her closet ever since! As soon as I saw it I fell in love with it and needed to show you all!

It’s a beautiful off yellow hue with intricate and detailed patterns on the fabric. A kimono like this just screams to be shown off, and so a simple black dress providing the backdrop proves to be ideal.

Another key accessory, which has been in my closet for a few years, is this pair of wooden platform sandals (which will soon be featuring in a giveaway we’re preparing – keep your eyes peeled!) that go perfectly with the oriental theme!

Kimonos ha sido una pieza clave de la pasada temporada S / S. El look de hoy destaca un Kimono vintage dado a mi madre por una artista japonésa hace muchos años, que se ha escondido en su armario desde entonces! Tan pronto como lo vi me enamoré de el.

Es un hermoso color amarillo apagado con estampados detallados sobre la tela. Un kimono como este tiene que destacar, para eso lo combinamos con un simple vestido negro. 

Otro complemento fundamental son este par de sandalias de plataforma de madera (que pronto saldrá en un sorteo que estamos preparando!!!) que van perfectamente con el estilo oriental de este look!
