You may have begun notice a theme with my Kimono layering: there are no rules. I think the ease and flow of a romantic Kimono lifestyle - romantic in the sense that you choose to adorn yourself in fabrics that drape on your body to make you feel a certain way- give way to creativity and inspiration in every aspect of your life, if you let it in...
This look focuses on textured fabrics and different lengths and the contrast of solids and patterns; then dark and light. I begin with the Lizard Queen Kimono in a pristine white crepe rayon fabric that has a beautiful weight to it which allows it to slink over the body in a beautiful draped way. This is cut in a longer one length style- a duster. It is collarless and simplistic and could be styled in many ways - here I chose to wear over jeans- which looks a little like a dress over jeans when it is tied as it is at the waist with a belt- which is a very cool look in itself. I chose the Lovers Kimono in a shorter length than the Lizard Queen. The Lovers fabric is a textured cotton fabric with a gold lurex metallic threading that is woven through and creates a pinstripe pattern- which is very masculine-chic. The nature of this fabric is much more airy and flowy- meaning it almost floats around you capturing air as you move inside it. This is of course when it is not tied- if you tie it you create a more streamlined silhouette.
Feeling a little romantic and a lot bohemian- I of course through in one of my favorite hats from my girl Michelle Roy of Social Butterflies Los Angeles. Jeans by Golden Goose- mens jeans from Parliament on 3rd (Los Angeles).
