kimono crazy

you guys. aren't these amazing?

These Japanese kimonos are from the early 20th century. The country was prospering economically and culturally and it definitely shows in their bold and colorful designs. Can you spot the western influenced designs? There are some elements of Art Deco and Art Nouveau for sure...





(my fav)



Have a great weekend!!
