About this exhibition
“Kimono” that expresses Japanese aesthetics in colors and patterns. Kosode, the original model, has been used as a garment since the latter part of the Muromachi period(1338~1573), with patterns such as dyeing, embroidery, and gold and silver sliding foil.
Kimono embodies Japan’s unique beauty world that continues to grow while developing in various ways.
This exhibition includes 200 items such as kimonos worn by historical celebrities such as Nobunaga, Hideyoshi, Ieyasu, and Atsuhime, as well as paintings of national treasures with kimono drawn in addition to Korin Ogata’s hand-drawn small sleeves, and kimonos by contemporary designers. The above works will be exhibited in one place.
“Kimono”, which survives more than 800 years and still has a new fashion scene, will be exhibited as a symbol of Japanese culture that lives in the present age, and it will be an opportunity to look at the past, present and future.
