A luxury silk dress made in a well-established factory shop for Kyo-yuzen, a Kyoto-style dyeing technique, with original designs.
Hyakkado uses a novel design based on a kimono’s obi belt motif to create a well-balanced fashionable dress of lady-like lines. One-piece dresses are made using the Kyo-yuzen method of dyeing originating in Kyoto, and belts are also available in high-class weaves such as Nishijin fabrics or Saga nishiki brocades.
Taking the sense of a traditional kimono and applying it to an everyday dress — that is the very essence of the world of modern Japonisme. Development based on a firm understanding of kimono fabric is what helps to retain the qualities that only a kimono possesses. This is a dress that binds tradition with the modern.
