Kimono Selection -Tsumugi Homongi-

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is Tsumugi-Homongi for semiformal occasion.

“Tsumugi” is usually stock dyeing(dyed before weaving),

but this type of kimono is piece dyeing(dyed after weaving).

 

We love this! This is also from the book,

Nagajuban no Kikonashi(長襦袢の着こなし)” by Sumi Sasajima.

 

Light beige background accented with blue color,

and it gives an impression of a serene accord with muted brown color.

 

One of our coordinators really love this, and tried to find the similar one.

However, as you know, it is pretty hard to do that in most cases.

 

It is said that the encounter a kimono as a once-in-a-lifetime one.

If you find one you really love, don’t miss it!

Check this if you are a Nagajuban freak!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you love nagajuban(kimono undergarment), don’t miss it!

This book is written by Sumi Sasajima, who is one of famous kimono dressing coordinator.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You will see very unique nagajuban on this book.

Usually, we don’t find them at kimono stores easily,

and mostly it would be custom-made.

Professional Kimono Dressing Techniques

We have seen lots of ladies out of Japan enjoy kimono fashion, and we are really happy with that!

 

We also know it’s quite difficult to learn kimono dressing(kitsuke) without any professional instructor. Even us, Japanese, go to class and practice, practice, practice to improve one’s skill!

 

Now we are working on the new content of professional dressing techniques and tips. We hope this may help you. If you have further question about dressing, feel free to request/ask us. That also may improve the content.
