In 2014, a number of North American retailers reported selling over 40,000 kimonos a week! It's now Summer 2016, and we still see these Japanese-inspired pieces at beaches, on the streets, at popular music festivals like Coachella...
Nowadays, Japanese people rarely wear kimonos in everyday life and reserve them for special occasions such as weddings, funerals, and tea ceremonies.
However, there is so much history behind the kimono- how it came to be and the evolution it went through. We found a great article about it on Vogue Italia which you can view here
We love La Vie en Rose's Luxury Edition Kimono ($49.95). Soft and silky, this garment will leave you feeling perfectly at ease. It's great for lounging around and will leave you feeling (and looking) so pretty too!
This kimono is part of their Fall and Winter 2016 collection. It's currently available online and in stores so be sure to check it out!
