Vintage Kimono Pop-up Boutique
16 - 19 November 2017, London
Sonoe Sugawara - a London-based Kimono dealer and owner of Furuki Yo-Kimono Vintage - will be popping-up for four days near Angel with hundreds of vintage kimonos from Japan, mostly from the pre-war Taisho period of the 1920-30s, when Western modernism mingled with Japanese tradition. Entry is free, and this will be her only pop-up shop before Christmas.
Hundrets of colourful, full of patterns vintage kimono just arrived from Japan!
The main collection of her kimonos are from 1920-30s pre-war period known in Japan as the Taisho period and Japanese Art Deco period when Western modernism mingled with Japanese tradition. Most kimono can be unisex, reversible and very much wearable for many occasions. Some materials and techniques used in vintage kimono are hard to find in modern kimono or are much higher in price, because of the exquisite workmanship involving much greater time and effort. Vintage kimono can be regarded as wearable works of art. The most important thing is to just enjoy wearing kimono.
This is her only pop-up shop before the Christmas and a rare opportunity to experience her kimonos closely for a longer period.
