I love learning about the history of a garment. That's cool that women would wear kimonos in patterns that coincide with the season! You have definitely just inspired me to wear my mom's vintage floral kimono =]

this EIU is so informative and well put together! i love all your examples esp. how you pointed how to get the look even if you can't find an actual kimono! thanks so much for this and I just recently saw that kimonos and oriental-inspired pieces will be big for 2012!!!

Burnout velvet kimonos are the best. I was just lucky enough to win the same kimono that Jean Greige is wearing in the first photo when she was running a giveaway for it. Otherwise I think I'd never be able to own one...they're always so expensive!

I do love these 'red threads' running through history and cultures! Thank you! Things and objects change to almost unrecognizable - I have a lovely 'kimono' from 1975 made of very light linen with graybrown decoration... Do you know that a real historical kilt (skirt worn by scottish men) takes some 8 metres of cloth?
