Kimono influences have been around for a while now, but we just can’t seem to get enough. During Amsterdam Fashion Week as well as the Paris Menswear shows in June we spotted some best dressed kimono influences out on the streets. With streetstyle stars each styling the fashion piece in their very own unique way. Have you incorporated the kimono into your summer wardrobe yet? It’s the ultimate versatile in between dress and jacket piece that goes a long way in any kind of summer weather. Plus, you can wear it into fall as well. At the moment we love a beautiful printed kimono with a good pair of mom jeans and a open loafer. It just breathes elegance, style and a touch of street. What are your thoughts on this asian inspired wardrobe essential?

The full on eastern influenced fashion collections might have had their peek by now, Japanese references are still a ‘thing’. Like the kimono, which is popping at certain big shows (Gucci, Céline) this season. Not necessarily interwoven in a bigger oriental theme, but long silhouettes, accentuated waists and wide sleeves just randomly introduced. Tough and bondage-like at Alexander McQueen, elegant and crispy clean at Marni, sweet and girly at Temperley London. On the streets too, the kimono style has proven to give women of all ages that super elegant appearance. Whether quilted, made out of python leather, floral printed or denim; this fashion piece is ever so ladylike and original. C’mon kimono!
