The kimono silhouette is totally on trend right now. We’ve spied kimono styles all over musical festivals and city streets, giving bohemian looks a personalized appeal. Beautiful patterns and colors are being painted on the classic kimono canvas, and designers are getting creative, experimenting with a variety of bold print motifs.

London-based label Star Mela creates fabulous pieces that channel the wanderlust spirit of the globetrotting design team. Drawing inspiration from artifacts gathered abroad, Star Mela apparel, bags and accessories have a free-spirited feel, utilizing exotic prints and sun-drenched colors palettes. Each charming piece brings out the wearer’s inner traveler, and adds a nostalgic, summery touch to a year-round wardrobe staple.

The Kishi Kimono Jacket stuns with a mixed print in swirling colors and ethnic print graphics. Long dolman sleeves bring authenticity to the classic kimono style. The draped fit is balanced by the straight hemline, keeping the look crisp. The soft voile fabric is lightweight and fluttery, giving The Kishi a roomy fit for layering potential.

Best of all, there’s plenty of room to get creative with this piece. This jacket is easily paired with denim, shorts or dresses of all shapes, colors and styles. We love this kimono paired with flared denim jeans and platforms for a nod to the trending 70s style, or over an all-black ensemble to really let those patterns shine. Opportunities for accessorizing are also endless, going glam with gold jewelry or super stylish with a funky boho bag or playful sunnies.
