These kimono were popular from the end of the Edo period to the beginning of the Showa period, and feature a retro-modern esthetic such as that reflected in "meisen" fabric. In recent years, this fabric's popularity has flourished, its remarkable features resonating with Japanese women's fashion sensibilities. Among these retro-modern features are geometrical patterns, dots, and "scattered arrow" patterns. So what made this fashion suddenly come back into vogue? When "meisen" started being produced around 150 years ago, this was the time Western fashion started to take root in Japan. As more and more people gravitated toward Western outfits, the kimono industry was forced to innovate in order to attract customers. Thus, they incorporated modern designs into their kimono. Very few rental shops in Japan provide these "antique" kimono. So if you're looking for a unique retro feel, look no further than Kokoyui.
