wafuku – noun: traditional Japanese clothing
Welcome to my Wordpress blog
The two kimonos shown here are, sadly, not mine but are wonderful examples of unusual kimonos, with striking textile art, obviously influenced by the West. They appear to have been designed by the same person.
First is one that I assume was inspired by the film Jaws, with a terrifying shark surging out of the water.
The second has a Halloween theme, with a pumpkin lantern, a cute witch, spooky house, moon and the most beautiful bubbles. Halloween is not a Japanese thing, so, like the Jaws inspired one, the influence of the West is clear in this kimono’s design.
I would absolutely love these kimonos in my own collection but they were beyond my price rage
