Digital Yukata

Opening the kimono to everyone is an article about Frenchwoman Maia Maniglier’s introduction to and love affair with kimono. Today she is “a passionate kimono advocate who is now pushing the boundaries of kimono design by meshing traditional garment-making with cutting-edge digital printing.” At the end, Maniglier gives some basic useful tips for buying kimono to wear, and two websites are mentioned:
o GO West! in kimono, an “imaginary kimono shop” in French and English
o Nakashiyama, in Japanese

The book mentioned in the article is available on Amazon Japan: パリジェンヌの着物はじめ (Parisienne no kimono hajime).

    Hello, Anna!

    Wow, I must say, your kimono collection is quite something! I love browsing and seeing all of your kimono. I found the “how to wear jubon/datemono/kimono” extremely helpful! However, I found these by using the google search and can’t seem to find them by navigating your site…it perplexes me. I would love to see your section on tying obi, but I can’t seem to find it…would you mind leaving me a link?

    This site that you link to (the digital kimono) is really interesting. It made me think of photo transfer techniques that I’m learning in my fibers class.

    Oh, and I have one question…when wearing a formal kimono, is it necessary to wear jubon, or can I wear eri-sugata in a jubon’s place? Also, if my kimono is lined, do I need to wear a jubon?

    Sorry to ask so many questions! It’s so nice that you know so much about this beautiful art! I love kimono as well, but I don’t know nearly enough about how to wear them. Thank you for your time!

    Meghan
