As you already know just recently I was at London Fashion Week – I’m still buzzing from the experience. And I have to admit, one of my main sources of fashion inspiration was found at the designer showrooms. It’s such a great way to discover up-and-coming labels and have a good idea where the future of fashion is heading for the seasons and years ahead. A stand which grabbed my attention immediately where the modern kimono’s. So you can imagine my excitement when KAYOMO LAB reached out about sharing their first collection.
KAYOMO LAB Project 001 has engineered an essential addition to the contemporary working wardrobe that achieves both practicality and sartorial elegance
Inspired by the Japanese kimono design, KAYOMO LAB launched their collection during LFW of long sleeved and sleeveless jackets called Project 001. Each piece can be seamlessly worn in a variety of different ways, both for men and women, from the actively professional day to a social evening. What do you think?
Each item from KAYOMO LAB has its own identity as each piece from Project 001 is different. Sourced from premium vintage fabrics and textures found in various parts if Italy, each jacket is cleverly combined together to create a one-of-a-kind kimono. As you can see the KAYOMO LAB Project 001 is so versatile. With it’s four different belts you can loop and tie the jacket in so many ways. This is such a great feature as anyone who is wearing the kimono can express him/herself by their unique style. Due to it’s oversized shape, I love to hang the jacket over my shoulders or should I fancy a change, I can even wear the kimono inside-out to show off the print and design of the silk interior.
