Laforet Harajuku is set to hold a kimono and furisode event from January 4 to 23 next year. A selection of 11 stores are taking part including 5 that are participating in the event for the first time. Shops include those that sell kimono which can be worn as everyday fashion to those that stock antique kimono and modern recycled kimono.
A multitude of items will be sold. Whether it’s for an official event like graduation or the Coming of Age Ceremony or something that can be born with regular clothing, you’re sure to find it here.
Modern Antenna is a brand based in Arashiyama, Kyoto that sells kimono with polished and sophisticated designs. Their quality is consistent with everything from the designs to the manufacturing. They don’t just cater to the traditional Japanese category―they take into account fashion as a whole when creating their clothing.
Roccoya Winter Shop
Roccoya is popular for its designs that fuse together the modern and traditional. They will appear alongside several guest brands including Haikaru Confeito, Baba Soushoku, hanamame, TSUBAKIAN, and erikaDear. The line-up will include a range of new furisode as well as casual kimono that can be washed at home, various pieces that can be used at ceremonies and for everyday use such as the haneri neck piece, obi sash, shawls, and obidome. They will also sell small accessories like headdresses and hairpins.
MIKI SAKURA & Sakura Maison
MIKI SAKURA’s concept for its items is “dignified women wrapped in beautiful fragrances.” Sakura Maison creates original “Japanese kawaii” kimono and accessories. These two brands will come together to open a special pop-up shop where popular artists will come together.
yuminique’s brand concept is to create something just for the customer that raises their mood simply by wearing it. They sell accessories like headdresses. They picture a jewellery box under a young girl’s bed when handcrafting each and every one of their products which are made from fantastic materials.
Masaboshi offers news ideas with its diverse range of kimono―from antique to contemporary―that create timeless looks. They will exhibit a wardrobe of cute furisode and pop vintage kimono personally selected by them as well as a line of cool and elegant kimono that grown-ups can enjoy too.
Modern Kimono Umeya feat. Tamao Shigemune
Modern Kimono Umeya and Tamao Shigemune are coming together to showcase new and original items as well as exclusive products you can only purchase at this event.
Modern Kimono Umeya is a select shop selling kimono and accessories for people to enjoy wearing kimono freely and as they like in the best possible way to bring out themselves. Their products take inspiration from regular clothing. Tamao Shigemune is a kimono maker that creates kimono, yukata, obi sashes and accessories completely produced by her from the designing to the planning and styling. She produces things she wants herself that no one else offers.
