New Japanese furisode kimono sweaters combine traditional fashion with modern streetwear

The comfiest Japanese kimono you’ll ever wear.

Hot on the heels of their super stylish Hanten Kimono Coat Parka, Japanese company Mocolle is back with a brand new take on traditional fashion, and this time their design cues come from the furisode kimono.

Furisode are Japanese kimonos traditionally worn by unmarried women, with long sleeves that range in length from mid-thigh to knee or all the way to the ground. You don’t have to be an unmarried woman to enjoy Mocolle’s new garment though, as their new Furisode Sweater focuses on modern style and practicality, with a design that can be worn by anyone.

Like their Hanten Parka, the Furisode Sweater was created from a design tweeted out by Japanese illustrator Kagetsu.

The new garment aims to combine the beauty of a long-sleeved kimono with the comfort of a sweatshirt, so you can casually enjoy Japanese-style dressing during the cooler months.

The V-neck design comes in three different colours: Pink, Dark Indigo Blue, and Bamboo Green.
