Kimono

Anna Jackson

Description

Kimono showcases a magnificent range of kimonos from the Khalili Collection, which comprises more than 200 garments and spans almost 300 years of Japanese textile artistry.

Gorgeously illustrated and written by an international team of experts, the book surveys kimono of the imperial court, samurai aristocracy and affluent merchant classes of the Edo period (1603–1868), the shifting styles and new colour palette of Meiji period dress (1868–1912) and the bold and dazzling kimono of the Taisho (1912–1926) and early Showa (1926–1989) periods, when designers used innovative new techniques and fused traditional looks with inspiration from the modernist aesthetic then sweeping the world.
