The modern day kimono dress
As part of an Instagram project I’m currently working on with John Lewis & Partners over the next couple of months, I’ll be featuring my picks from the store’s collections. The oversized ‘kimono dress’ from Kin is an absolute winner. Though some might argue it’s a long way from the traditional Japanese garment, the band running along the neckline and down the centre front, and the looser, boxy shape do have a kimono-esque feel. This is a modern day interpretation. Made from a substantial viscose fabric, too hot for a heatwave but good quality nevertheless, the not-so-little black dress is definitely a reliable addition to the grown-up wardrobe.
