KIIRO creates mode kimono for women with a high fashion sense. For a limited time only, the brand will make their way to the 2nd floor center park of department store Isetan in Shinjuku, in Tokyo Kaihoku, and the 7th floor Isetan Kimono Club.
“KIIRO” means “colours that work.” It’s an innovative kimono brand for women experienced in the ways of the world where one can freely enjoy fashion that is you through colour and design.
KIIRO is managed by Mimatsu, an 85-year-old clothing store, who offer innovative kimono designs, such as “kimono styled like dresses” and “both clothing and kimono layered.”
What really made their debut was the kimono artwork created by 38 different women. Women from a diverse range of industries came forward to offer their own unique and gorgeous styles, such as tarento Masami Hisamoto, fashion consultant Nagisa Ichikawa and model Chiaki Hatakeyama.
These must-see kimono are displayed instore for the duration of the event, as well as on KIIRO’s official Instagram page.
