JO­TARO SAITO’S TIPS ON HOW TO BUY A KI­MONO

Elle (Canada) - - Style -

1. “Buy a ki­mono from a store that sells them as prac­ti­cal wear for ev­ery­day life rather than as a tra­di­tional cos­tume.”

2. “Choose an au­then­tic hand­crafted ki­mono from a re­li­able shop. Look for the designer’s sig­na­ture on the lower front of the gar­ment; this is proof that it is the real deal.”

3. “Buy some­thing that truly ap­peals

to you; ar­rang­ing and ad­just­ing the ki­mono to fit with your per­sonal style is a good thing. Wear­ing it should make you feel lux­u­ri­ous.”
