I love the work of Yamamoto Yumi!

She makes kimono, obi and zori from modern print fabric which means her kimono look really funky.

Don't you just love this outfit?  It is just perfect for the seaside.

Even her more traditional looking kimono outfits still have a modern feel to them.

However I do like to experiment and I love combine boots with kimono because zori/geta are not warm enough for the UK winters.  I have my trusty tan boots which are great for kimono!
