1970s Hanae Mori Palest Blue Butterfly Silk Kimono

This stunning silk kimono from Hanae Mori has a dreamy and romantic print in shades of blues that range from the palest of colors to a deeply saturated pastel. It looks to have never been worn or used and would be perfect to use as wedding kimono or on your honeymoon, or to top an evening ensemble. Of course it also works as a lingerie piece for the boudoir as well. It is just lovely and has such a romantic feel. The print is hand screened and painted with hauntingly beautiful butterflies that flit across the surface of the silk. The butterfly is a Hanae Mori signature and I love that they are used with such romantic abandon on this piece as they trail across the surface of the kimono. These are fantastic to wear at home and you can even make these work as a dress if you add a silk slip under it and cinch the waist closed with the matching sash. Excellent condition

The kimono is fully lined with an blue tissue silk and has no closures. It has its original belt and the the fabric is signed throughout. There are couple of small smudges here and there but nothing that detracts.
