Working with different lengths of Kimonos really allows you to play with the silhouettes and create different looks. As a basic white 'menswear' inspired Kimono 'shirt'- I start a basic white Kimono as a base then layer upon it the shorter cut new 'Provence' Kimono- a beautiful South of France inspired pattern in a gorgeous azure toned blue with a white motif. It is a soft rayon fabric and has an excellent drape. I love rayon because it is a natural fabric and really drapes well and is lightweight enough to wear all year around. The Faye Kimono beneath does not have a lapel- whereas the Provence Kimono has one- thus lending to the boys type of 'Jacket over Shirt' look I was inspired to emanate.
I paired the look with a pair of men's patchwork distressed jeans are by Golden Goose that I got from Parliament West 3rd in Los Angeles(I get a lot of my pants here from the mens section!). I used the Provence belt around the white Kimono to add contrast but one could also be cool to add a leather belt on your waist as well.
