SHA, the silk gauze kimono

The luxury of going back to everyday kimono


These kimono date back to the Taisho (1912-1926) and early Showa (1926-1945) periods, when the kimono was an everyday outfit for the Japanese. The meticulous embroidery and stylish yet playful designs still capture our attention today. It is PUFFY's idea to have a theme joining kimono and obi (sash). Yumi wears an obi with seashell patterns to go with her shrimp-embroidered kimono, and Ami has opted for black on black.
