"Paulownia" Kakeshita Wedding Kimono

This is a vintage Japanese wedding kimono, but it has us confounded. We've listed it as a kakeshita style wedding kimono but it has the design of the more formal uchikake style. In fact here are several types of Japanese wedding kimono (uchikake, kakeshita, shiromuku), and the kakashita are typically lighter weight, a lighter padding at the hem, and is meant to be belted.

This kakeshita is light weight (relative to the uchikake) and can be belted but the design is more typical of an uchikake, where the patterning would be uninterrupted because it would not be covered by an obi. The kakeshita typically has a lighter patterning or even a blank space at the waist which would be covered by the obi.

The design on this wedding kimono has almost a checkerboard effect, with gold bands alternating with large, colorful paulownia florals with green, purple, orange, and light blue accents.

See the video below for how these are traditionally worn as well as some images of how to display a wedding kimono in your home or office.
