What is the kimono dress?

Kimono means "thing to wear" in Japanese. Theclassic kimono dress has a straight cut and is long (usually to the ankles) with long, wide sleeves.

It is a dress that wraps around the waist with a belt called "obi". In Japanese culture, the way the belt is tied is a mark of social belonging. In the past, this garment was worn by both men and women.

Today, designers have imbued themselves with this ancestral dress to incorporate it into contemporary collections while keeping the Japanese spirit of this piece with its very particular cut.

The patterns of the modern kimono robe are therefore imbued with prints that are both modern and retro. There are flower kimono dresses , geometric prints, animal prints etc. There really is something for everyone. The dress is no longer just long, there are short and midi cuts.

The kimono dress is suitable for most body types. Indeed, its cut and its materials are often fluid and light, which makes it an ideal dress for curvy, thin, tall or short women.
