A chic grey-mauve vintage komon kimono with a contemporary abstract swallowtail design with scattered plum (ume) blossom motifs on a luxurious silk chirimen crepe.

This komon (small print) kimono is a modern take on a traditional Japanese butterfly motif which is a symbol of femininity & are considered auspicious for weddings. The kimono has an white silk inner and deep lavender silk hakkake (the inner cuff and hem of the lining). 

Chirimen is a heavy silk crepe with a faint crinkled uneven texture. Chirimen fabric drapes beautifully and is difficult to crease which makes it popular in kimono making.
