OMG...this Large Kimono is simply sensational. It is created in the Furisode style with fabulous deep sleeves. The detail and color of the design is amazing.

It is designed by the iconic Japanese designer..Kansai Yamamoto (1944-) and bears the signature of his Studio...Kansai Super Studio, and dates to c1980.

Kansai Yamamoto is an Internationally renowned designer..best known for his avant-garde costume designs..including those worn by David Bowie in his famous Ziggy Stardust tour..see the last photo. In the 1970's and 1980's Yamamoto was recpgnized as 'Fashion's Ultimate Fantasist'.

Fashioned from one unique length of Rinzu..pure silk Damask..the traditional design is a one-of-a-kind. A strong and vibrant red pure silk with a self pattern (Jacquard) of beautiful Camellias, Peonies and Leaves forms the basis.

Over this runs a series of Wheels, Fans and Floral Balls (Kusudama) in Olive, Crimson, Aubergine and White. This delightful design is set off by the addition of large Fans (Sensu) across the entire back in shades of Pink, Purple, Olive and Black.

The floral balls contain a mixture of Sweet Peas, Peonies, Chrysanthemums, Irises and Lilies all edged finely in white and detailed with additions of gold glaze.

Stunning Tassels in Black and Gold Glaze finish the design. And the whole kimono is highlighted by the addition of fine Gold Glazing details.

The upper lining is off-white silk/satin and the lower lining is Black Silk Damask (Rinzu) with a self pattern of flowers, finished at the edges with more exquisite tassels.

Measuring Entire Width (sleeve-tip to sleeve-tip) 54 1/2", the Body Width is 27 1/2", and the Length is 66". The Sodetake (sleeve depth) is 45".

Signed by the designer Kansai Yamamoto's Studio (Kansai Super Studio 1973-2014) it is a designer piece in a one-of-a-kind fabric design.

The Furisode is the most formal Kimono worn by un-married women and the extra deep sleeves are a feature of the style.

Traditionally kimono have no sizing or label and it has not been dry cleaned.

The Vintage condition is absolutely fabulous. The Silk is strong and vibrant and the lining is unmarked.

A truly amazing one-of-a-kind Kimono. It looks stunning hung on a fine black pole against a wall or in a glass case..but is in wonderful condition and could of course be worn as a fabulous Boudoir Gown. A long Black Tasselled cord would make a perfect Obi belt.

I have been collecting stunning original Antique and Vintage Kimono for many years and have only ever seen one other Original Yamamoto Studio Kimono for sale and that was in Tokyo. The price was $15,000 USD.
