This is a stunning, genuine Japanese furisode/wedding kimono/robe/coat in very good used condition. Perfect to wear as traditional costume, as a unique and glamorous robe or coat or for display/interior decor.
Would make a unique gift. The fabric is a vermilion (orange/red) silk crepe (chirimen), with a smooth finish.The hem and sleeve ends are gradated through to black, to offset the beautiful designs. There are gorgeous motifs of shell boxes (kaioke), small artefacts and cherry blossoms, in attractive colours. The upper lining is ivory fabric, the skirt lining is vermilion. The kimono is hiyoku, there are several layers of false linings, intended to give the impression of three under kimonos beneath. T he furisode is in very good used condition. No major marks or flaws but there are some very small white spots on one sleeve and shoulder. Please check the photos carefully.
This furisode would be perfect as traditional dress, as a stunning and unique robe or coat, or to hang on a wall for display. Also for anime/manga/cosplay or as an unusual gift. Traditional kimono styling, with square shaped, very long sleeves and a wrap front, which makes the fit very adaptable. Furisode is a wedding kimono, it is characterised by very long sleeves. Long sleeves are considered to be sexy, and are worn by unmarried girls.
In my opinion this would easily fit a UK size Medium/Large Tall or UK 14L-16L and maybe slightly larger. Please check the measurements and make your choice. Please note this is a massively long length garment.This kimono would have been be worn with an obi sash. I have several obi for sale in separate listings, and others available on request. Could also be worn with a wide belt, cord, or sash, depending on your requirements. The length would normally be adjusted by folding over at the waist and securing with a cord hidden under the obi. Shoulder to shoulder 68cm 26.8.... Sleeve length 112cm 44.1.... Smoke and pet free home.
