At KIM+ONO, we’re continually inspired by traditions and history and how those inform our modern day lives. From the traditions of the kimono as an everyday garment and the ancient symbols of botanicals, birds, and nature in general, our collections have drawn inspiration from the past as we look to bring a new kimono robe into the future.
In our newest collection, we’re bringing traditional symbolism into a modern update. With colors that bring a soft, subtle strength in their depth and designs that leave space between each kimono pattern, this modern collection of kimono robes and designs is the gorgeous addition to any closet. With an emphasis on color, composition and emotion, this collection evokes a connection to nature while tipping its hat to the concrete jungle. The botanical silhouettes remind us to take a breath and find our balance. We know you’ll find something that suits your own modern taste with a nod to the ancient traditions that inspired it. We’re so excited to introduce you to our newest collection: the Modern Abstract Collection.
The kimono pattern of our newest Iku Kimono Robe brings a fresh update to timeless blooms. With a subtle backdrop of bone, it brings a heightened dimension to the floral silhouettes. This grounded, earthy color is a gorgeous choice to bring your everyday outfit to life. We suggest finding your favorite dress and slipping this floral kimono pattern over it for a look that turns heads but keeps you grounded. The beautiful fabric sways against your ankles and pairs beautifully with a strappy, delicate shoe. It’s a transition piece for fall that would work wonderfully with an easy first layer of jeans and black t-shirt. The kimono pattern itself evokes the shadows you can find in nature, while bringing a city sensibility in the pairing of black and bone colors. It’s your new go-to piece and we hope you love it as much as we do.
With our newest black floral kimono robe, you’ll never wonder what to wear to up your style each day. This piece has a soft, subtle design that evokes part of our creative process: hand sketching. For all of our designs, the kimono patterns are first sketched by hand, making them the true works of art that they are. These sketches are an integral part of our design process, and that’s why we love this kimono pattern so much. With the gentle strokes evoking petals and leaves, this black floral kimono robe is an amazing piece to transition you from day to night. With the classic black backdrop, it goes with just about everything. From jeans and t-shirt, to a lightweight layer over a dress for work, to a chic addition as a kimono jacket for happy hour, this kimono robe flows with you throughout your day.
We love the Kae Kimono Robe so much, that we’ve brought to life with colors across the spectrum. The classic, traditional feel of the black floral kimono robe is a beautiful choice, but so is our softer sage color. We love this for any kimono outfit that brings a balance of beauty and strength to the wearer. With lighter jeans and a heavier sweater underneath, the Kae Kimono Robe in sage is a striking fall piece for your wardrobe. It brings a surprising lightness to your look, even as the weather gets cooler, and gives you options as you look for pieces to layer whether indoors or out. This kimono robe gives any kimono outfit a subtle strength in its fluid drape and consistent kimono pattern. The sketch-like petals in white bring a delicate touch to the sage background and can provide that boost of intensity when you’re looking for that missing piece to your outfit.
One of our fan favorites has always been the Handpainted Cherry Blossom Kimono Robe in ink. So we decided to bring another option for a navy blue kimono robe to the line up and expand on what we know you love. This kimono pattern riffs on the delicate brushstrokes of our Handpainted Collection and offers a modern and abstract touch to a classic floral favorite. With white accents that blur the usual details with a modern aesthetic, this is truly a piece that brings the classic beauty of the past into an updated future.
This newest Modern Abstract Collection brings delicate florals to life and the Mio Kimono Robe is a perfect example of doing just that. With another subtle background of snow, this is a light touch with a strong point of view. The black modern abstract accents both heighten and ground this piece, making it a cinch to throw over any outfit for a sartorial boost. We love the way the Mio Kimono Robe highlights its black floral kimono pattern as it effortlessly drapes with an easy flow. Our suggestion is to substitute this for your blazer or cardigan, making it a lightweight layer to take your everyday look to a whole new level.
We hope you fall in love with this collection as much a we have. From the delicate and specific kimono patterns from the past to the unexpected palettes of the modern day, we love watching past meet future in one gorgeous piece. Whether you choose to wear these pieces inside your home or on the go, we hope that each kimono robe brings the feeling of art and beauty to mind. Although we love to pull inspiration from the past, it’s you, the modern woman, who inspires us the most. With your unstoppable nature and your love for balance and beauty, we hope these modern kimono robes reflect your strength, your beauty, and your spirit.
