This is a girl's kinsha (fine crepe) silk kimono which has a soft and smooth touch in good quality silk with enchanting colourful kiku (chrysanthemum) floral design and red, green and black kasumi (mist) motif pattern all over in off-white.
It has a bachi-eri (folded lapel) and a beautiful oriental red silk in the top lining and pink chirimen (crepe) silk in the bottom lining.
I love the design and colour of the kimono. It's definitely one of my favourites. It would be stunning to wear and also display as a decorative piece for a room. Viva La Vida is a really charming piece.
As you can see the measurements on the website, it isn't a very big kimono. I'm usually a UK size 8. The kimono doesn’t close at the front on me. The sleeves are a little bit short but I don't think you need to worry about that much. It makes lovely very lightweight silk long jacket for women.
It has certain wear and some flaws including a big smudge mark in the back right sleeve. However even so this is such an attractive antique kimono ♡ Please check the detail photos and the 'Extra Images'.
Note: This kimono does not come with a belt. If you would like one, please check my casual obi collection on casual-obi-belt.html. Prices start from £8 or £10 for a belt.
