'Aka Keisei' Kimono

  • This vibrant, vintage 'Red Siren' Kimono in textured silk feels as sensational as it looks. The weave's plaid pattern is made with fine black threads and the bold lining is in red and pink silk.

    While this traffic stopping number will inevitably attract attention - the bonus element is that red is energising and deflects negativity according to the Japanese - the very best kind of party attire! A true conversation starter!

    Of course the 100% silk Aka Keisei would look pretty amazing hung as wall art too.

    Externally this kimono is in immaculate condition - there are very minor age spots on inside lining. Superb.


    Note - Please Read before purchase:

    Kimonos are generally made, for wearing traditionally tied with an Obi sash, on smaller framed, not too tall bodies - however if worn as an open jacket there is generally enough room in the sleeve area and in length to be worn by several sizes larger and taller than originally intended. However there is no guarantee it will sit perfectly on your body shape. Let's call it freestyle!

    As we take every measure to ensure you are advised of the correct sizing prior to purchase - we ask you to please be aware that we don't refund for garments chosen in error. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any queries regarding dimensions before purchase.

    All vintage and antique kimono and haori were hand made. Therefore you may see some loose, temporary stitches around edges of sleeves, hems and collars on our kimonos. These stitches, called shitsuke ito, are kept in place to assist the valuable kimono in retaining its shape and alignment. In Japan the stitches are normally removed before wearing then restitched again after cleaning and before storage, for the same reasons as above. We like the look of authenticity they bring so feel free to retain them if you like, or remove them before wearing.
