kimono style dresses are sexy and airy. they combine the sophisticated look worth of a 40something art collector type of woman with the bohemian and exotic feel of a younger girl. i like their versatility - being them a tunic or a wrap can be worn directly on skin with heeled sandals, or dressed down with wolly tights and turtle-neck tops.
my friend's friend got this on sunday in Columbia Road Flower Market. it is a Diane Von Fustenberg piece. it was so perfect on her french body.i love this kimono. the colour blocks could resemble a Matisse painting.
fabolous, a brand loved by Californian celebrities.
a very graphic design by Buddhist Punk. Temperley is unbeatable for retro-style tunics with bold colours and eccentric prints.Antonio Marras, ah Marras, we are all looking forward to land into your affordable Isola Marras.
to conclude this catwalk of delicacies, the cherry on the cake: a William Matthewson kimono extravaganza. i am going to slip into a similar style (with a much cheaper label) on saturday for my engagement party, but i will not disclose the model till then... : P
without knowing how big snake prints were this forthcoming spring (see Loboutin and Jimmy Choo below), i have just ordered a pair of made-to-measure silver fish sandals. they are proper dance shoes, which are by definition soft and flexible, in one word comfortable. it's the same idea that repetto had: turn technical shoes into everyday/fashionable items.
