Our daughter Mugi is showing the kimono and obi coordination everyday.
She chooses obi and kimono both from old and new stock, and there are lot of matching of things from new age and vintage items.
You can see the lisg from here-こちら We hope you enjoy each matching.
We like to show the top ten coordination which received more respond.
Matching of kimono and obi is like making a story-making a poetic matching is what Mugi is trying to do. People from old age enjoyed this and this might be the point people enjoy and care wearing kimono. The following coordination might be out of rule sometimes, but we hope you enjoy the `colorful' and whimsical way of matching!
TOP 10 KIMONO and OBI COORDINATION
1 Giant owl
Other dealers said, the owl is way too big! I liked this size.
2 Waves and birds (Nami-chidori)
Waves and birds are often matched traditionally but the design of this kimono was exceptional. The simple obi is good for the overwhelming design kimono.
3 Check at waterside
Colors link and the bridge look like rainbow!!
4 Fruit basket
The dot may look like dango (Japanese sweets).
5 Dove and raibow
This dove has been dyed by rainbow?
6 Chin dog and stripes
Chin is too cute, stripes can add some steady impression.
7 Locomotive and chequered pattern
Locomotie obi? No kimono can match (we were told by old dealers).
Here is the savior kimono!
8 Rabbits in wonderland
Seems like these rabbits like vivid colors!
9 Chiken and shibori
This is a very impressive vintage kimono and the unique modern shibori obi could tame this wild kimono.
10 Parasols and butterflies
Flowery parasols swarmed by thousands of butterflies!
Mugi will continue showing more kimono and obi coordination. We hoep you enjoy the story told by kimono and obi!
