Yukata Like A Max Dress In Summer

Hi everyone! Maxi dresses are in this summer. In Tokyo, I have seen lots of people wearing them. A kimono is similar to a maxi dress, isn't it? I wore this yukata (a kind of summer kimono) and went to a steak restaurant near my home.


In the last picture, I drew the fashion illustration from Chanel fall couture 2019. Anyway, It was the first time that I styled this bag from Kate Spade with a yukata in summer. There are beautiful constellations are on this bag, so I often wear it in winter because winter is illumination season. You can see it here. This time, I realized that this bag is also fantastic on a summer night. In addition, I just post the newest article about yukata on my another blog, Kimonoism 10. You can also see my newest indian ink paintings here!

最後のイラストは、新シャネルのコレクションからファッションイラストを描きました。 ところで、この星座のバッグを浴衣に合わせたのは初めて。今までは、イルミネーションがきれいな冬に持つことが多かったです。こちらでご覧いただけます。でも、夏の夜にもぴったりなのが分かって嬉しくなりました。お洒落きものイズム10周年企画の『お洒落きものイズム10』に7月のコラムもアップされましたので、是非そちらも一緒にお楽しみくださいね。
