Our Summer Story Lilac silk kimono depicts beautiful summer blossoms overlaid with Japanese calligraphy, above a delicate pastel background. A simply stunning, yet subtle, design.

This kimono has been made to the highest standards by an old established family firm in Kyoto. It has the classic kimono shape and rectangular hanging sleeves, and a narrow matching belt, which can be fastened quickly and easily at the most comfortable position.

Summer Story is a robe with a touch of luxury.  We recommend dry clean only for this delicate, high-quality silk fabric.

We must have a complete set of your kimonos by now and they always add a little bit of luxury to the evening.” (Jon F. of Worcestershire)
