Alekai Kimono Dress
Out of stock
The Alekai Kimono dress is both feminine and tribal. A wrap over dress with exaggerated kimono sleeves. The sleeves are left partially open under the arm in a traditional kimono pattern. The dress can be wrapped around the body and tied with a wide block printed sash belt in the same print as the dress or worn open as a dramatic summer coat. The sash belt can double as a matching headscarf. These pieces look equally as stunning at the beach as they do worn as evening, ceremonial or occasion wear
The kimono dress is made from moss crepe viscose. This durable fabric has an incredible drape and luminosity in the colours of the print
The length is 147cm although individual pieces may vary slightly as each piece is individually cut and created. Size wise, worn fully closed this will fit UK size 8 to 12 and worn open up to a size 16.
