Description
 
This listing is for a traditional vintage furisode kimono originally created for a young, unmarried woman. Furisode are worn for formal events, such as Seijin-no-hi (Coming of Age Day, sometimes translated as Adults Day) in early January. Furisode are also worn for weddings, recitals, receptions, and other celebrations calling for formal attire. Note the long sleeves (furi = long, sode = sleeves) sometimes called "butterfly sleeves", which flow with grace when she gestures, attracting male attention!

This vintage formal Japanese kimono is an bright emerald green with a splashy pattern of peonies in gold and white arching across the back and seeming to pile up along the hemline. Many of the blossoms have an embroidered red center and gold couching outlining the petals.

There is a dark pink silk basted at the collar to simulate an underlayer, and the design house label is sewn on the inside collar panel.

It is nearly pristine but sadly there is a small blemish at the lower back, see photo.


The video below shows some beautiful examples of how these are worn traditionally and how the design is created.
