Kimono hime

Princess Sayako of Japan is going to be married soon, and held a farewell ceremony in which she wore a beautiful juunihitoe.

For a very different “kimono hime” (hime is Japanese for princess), scans of volumes 4 and 5 of the magazine have been posted to the LiveJournal group kimonoworld. Taisho chic with a modern perspective — the lace accents are great fun! There are also some hairdos from that period that I’m definitely going to try.

o Kimono Hime vol. 4
o Kimono Hime vol. 5 (both on Amazon Japan)

    Hakama are the only way to excuse buying kimono nearly a half a foot (or more!) too short to wear (^-^)b
