I love my vintage 1960's era kimono. I was immediately smitten with the colorful embroidered pheonix on the back and had it shipped to me directly from Japan. However, I wanted a closure option.
I decided to add my rarely-worn (worn one time in more than five years) Gucci obi belt. I loved the knotted detail of the braided leather ties on the back, so that's the section I added from the belt.
I totally love the results.
