Featured Article - Kimono Hime

The main focus of the Kimono-Hime style is to create a modern-vintage vibe with your outfit, combining antique kimono and obi with modern western accessories. Each publication of Kimono-Hime has its own focus upon a particular aspect of the style. The title and focus of the first 6 books was an "Antique & Cheap" kimono look, with the others covering "Formal Occasions", "Yukata", "Magnificent Antiques", and the buying of various accessories. (See Kimono Hime)

Kimono-Hime style often uses:

  • Antique/vintage kimono, juban, and obi
  • Bold patterns
  • Striped/patterned socks/tabi
  • Lace
  • Multiple accessories, including gloves, necklaces, hats, scarves, hairpieces, and large bags
  • geta, okobo, or western footwear
  • Multiple layers (showing the layers, meaning the juban is longer than the kimono at hem and sleeves)
  • Patterned juban collar/haneri
