Like coffee, exercise and nutrient-rich food, your clothing has the capacity to increase or decrease your energy levels. That’s not the only thing, it is also a powerful thing that you get to choose every day.
The Dubai-based brand KimonoGirl is a pioneer in Energy Fashion and combines all the principles of science and energy healing to give you the power to unleash your inner Goddess through its silk kimonos. Kimonos, originating from over 1,000 years ago are a symbol of longevity and good fortune, have traversed far beyond the East and are known as a fashion statement throughout the globe, worn casually and on the red carpet.
KimonoGirl has launched its limited-edition collection of Elemental kimonos representing the four elements on nature – Air, Earth, Fire and Water. Each element emits a specific vibration and characteristic and healers have found that focusing on the elements can restore personal balance. In this range of Elemental Kimonos, each carries the strengths and wisdom of the element and is energetically charged to bring the wearer balance and harmony. As every piece is hand-made, there are only 25 pieces of each kimono. Each kimono is made of silk source from India, hand-stitched and embroidered with elegant craftsmanship in techniques that have been handed down for centuries and is sustainable and ethically sourced and delivered.
The air kimono, representing intellect, mental intention, and connection to the universal life force, is light and transparent using an oversized flowy kimono shape with a volume hood, created from a lightweight silk georgette to achieve a dynamic airy look. Embellished with an all-over print of hummingbirds in soft colours at the hemline.
