In this beautifully written and lavishly illustrated book Liza Dalby traces the history of the kimono - its designs, uses, aesthetics and social significance. The colourful and stylised kimono, the national garment of Japan, expresses not only Japanese fashion and design taste but also reveals something of the soul of Japan, and is seen by many as a symbol for all that is Japanese - simplicity, elegance and beauty. Amazingly beautiful, the kimono has gone through many changes in the centuries since it was first imported from China, changes that reflect the way that Japanese society has also developed over the ages.

  1. En väl uttömmande bok
    Erin, 11 oktober 2015

    En bok som verkligen går på djupet i frågan om kimonons uppkomst, betydelse och nutida utseende och samtidigt som man får allt detta får man även en viss förståelse för det japanska samhället och den japanska identiteten.

Recensioner i media

"She offers a tour of the cultural collisions that have become part of the fabric not just of the kimono but of modern Japan. It is a tour well worth taking" Wall Street Journal "An impressive, unusual and beautiful book. There are many valuable insights here - not only about Japanese clothing but also about patterns of gender, class and identity in Japanese culture" -- Joseph J. Tobin, author of 'Re-Made in Japan' "A lively, informative study of the kimono, tracing its evolution throughout Japanese history to its current status as the national dress of Japan... At once scholarly and enjoyable reading" Journal of Japanese Studies
