Mamechiyo Modern photo series

I started working on a new photo series: Mamechiyo Modern kimono visits Amsterdam ^_^

Wearing the wool hounds-tooth Mamechiyo Modern kimono at a trip to the Vondelpark in Amsterdam to take snowy pictures of "Het Blauwe Theehuis".
In order to fit the scenery, the white and black kimono is paired with a blue chuya obi, black tabi and blue geta.
The snow scene helps to make the picture look as if black-and-white.
I think these informal wool kimono are perfect and even wearable in winter, nice and warm.
The second picture is an un cropped version of the picture, as I do not know yet which one I favourite.

Ohh, jealous about that kimono :-)
I like the uncropped version, since it shows more of the trees covered in snow.
Nice pictures!

Yes I can imagine! This kimono was a super luxury find, as it's sold out. But I found it in an antique shop, so lucky!
That is exactly why I liked the uncropped version, but the cropped one showed the kimono more and it's about the kimono, hence my doubt.
But imaginary wise the uncropped is better, yes.
Thank you!

I do love the uncropped version, it's so nice to see more of the branches.

I like the un-cropped photo and the snowy trees in it. That kimono is really lovely! *_*

So precious! Hope to come across a hounds-tooth kimono for myself, too. Hounds-tooth is classic, but in a kimono, I think it's modern. :-)
