Abstract:

"Kimono is a generic term for traditional Japanese clothing; it means "thing to wear." This book provides an overview of various traditional garments, introduces types of designs found in twentieth century kimono that are still available, and presents wearable art inspired by kimono from contemporary artists. The text gives price ranges for items that would be reasonable in a store or gallery, and explains what to look for when collecting. Because kimono are disappearing from Japanese wardrobes, they probably will become increasingly collectible." "Each of the fourteen chapters opens with the definition of the type of apparel covered therein (including simple, every-day, formal, etc.) as well as their use in Japanese life. The terms are further explained in the Glossary. Over 525 color photographs display brilliant and subtle textile designs and demonstrate beauty in men's, women's, and children's garments and accessories. Textile and clothing designers will find a wealth of inspiration here. Vintage clothing entusiasts will be enthralled. Book jacket."--Jacket.
