Mother’s Day is just around the corner and, not surprisingly, it’s one of our absolute favorite holidays. And it’s not because our co-founders, sisters Tiffany and Renee Tam, are mothers in addition to all they do for KIM+ONO. It’s that many of our customers are. And who deserves a little luxury added to their every day more than a mother? We think mamas are the most beautiful people in the world, and this week (and every week!) we are celebrating them. Whether you have one, are one, or will be one soon — this week is for you!
Sophia Lauren said, “When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.” We couldn’t agree more! Your mother is someone who always has you in mind from the time she wakes up until she goes to sleep, no matter how old you are! We loved seeing this gorgeous women’s kimono on Georgia Grace Pendleton as she wakes up with her sweet babe. Our Washable Silk Collection is the perfect mama-inspired set of kimono robes. You can lounge in luxury but still gently clean this kimono at home after a messy day.
"Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws,” wrote author Barbara Kingsolver. Becoming a mama, whether it’s through labor, adoption, surrogate, or some other way, is a beautiful and life-changing moment. But it requires the strength that only a mother could summon! That’s why we love seeing our customers wearing their pieces, like this blue kimono robe, during their pregnancy and nursing. Just a little touch of luxury can go a long way at the hospital or during those long sleepless nights at the beginning of your baby’s life.
Gilbert Parker said, "For when a child is born the mother also is born again." Every birth of a child, no matter how many kids she has, is a new beginning for a mother. With each child comes new lessons, new ups and downs, and new abilities. It can be so easy with more and more children to forget that taking care of yourself is how you take care of the whole family. So as you’re starting out again, try out one of our semi sheer kimono cardigans. They’re lightweight and easy to wear at home or on the go. And these semi sheer kimono cardigans are a perfect fit for mama because they are as strong as they are soft. Just like her.
If only every mom felt like Reese Witherspoon: “I like my body so much better after I had kids. Is that a crazy thing to say? I'm more womanly. I feel sexier." We know you’re body is incredible and we want you to feel that every single day. But you don’t have to sacrifice your pre-baby style once the little one arrives. Choosing a maxi kimono like Jayme Sy’s is an easy option to throw over jeans and a top. It’s casual but dramatic. It’s fun to wear. And it celebrates the beautiful woman you are and beautiful body you have.
From our family to yours, we’re wishing you a luxurious Mother’s Day!
