Bag of Luck

01/02/2012

So I may have.. only *may* have… invested in a few too many kimono lately.  ‘Invested’ – a very appropriate word for use with kimono, too, for they are undoubtably an investment. You should definitely invest some time in the Kimono Festa at the Kyoto Event space.

Kimono are really the last great Japanese RL frontier for me.  I’ve been here for over a decade now but so far resisted, or maybe escaped is the word, the opportunity to wear one.  I’m understandably then still quite clueless on the names for all the bits and ever in awe at the way they manage to co-ordinate all the little pieces with just the right amount and balance of contrast.

Here`s just a couple.. er few of the ones I’ve acquired.  The first is from tomoto, by Tomo Wachter. Unswerving quality, each piece a little slice of pixel perfection. Anything from tomoto is fabulous and the Akikusa kimono is no exception.  The autumn grass that patterns the black are done in a rich gold colour. I love the bold strength of this one.

This kimono from *Miumin* by Miu Minuet, is much softer, lighter and feminine.  ‘Kiku’ is just so gorgeous, flowy and subtle.  I love it.  What I especially love is the inclusion of the tabi, zouri, hair piece and little ‘Chrysanthemum in a bottle’ bag that are included.

Finally, from *koyu* by Koyuki Memo, this cheerful bright red kimono. I`m sure it would pass for a summer yukata, but I’ve added the luxury of a boa and muff from tomoto to complete the winter look.  The kimono itself was a LuckyBoard win! and the black boa is just $1L from tomoto, on the marketplace .   The muff is actually colour change and there are nine different furs to choose from.
