I was so surprised by the space and architectural organization of the museum, there was a really japanese atmosphere! even the girls working at the museum were wearing kimonos!!
so, today's inspiration is dedicated to kimonos (old and new).

for the find of the day : Anna Nipponica makes kimono dresses using pure silk and the best quality kimono with gorgeous prints. it is a wonderful story between a grandmother and her granddaughter and their outstanding kimonos.
