Travel Tip: Pop Culture and Cinema in France
Kimonos in Bloom at Bagatelle



Kimonos in Bloom at Bagatelle
FRANCE
PARIS  •  Parc de Bagatelle  •  Ongoing
 
 

Embroidered with flowers or animals, old or contemporary, kimonos are worn for weddings, ceremonies and in everyday life. In order to mark the 150th anniversary of Franco-Japanese relations, around sixty kimonos from the 19th and 20th centuries are on display alongside contemporary kimonos at the Parc de Bagatelle in the Bois de Boulogne just outside Paris. Most of them are from the Bunka Gakuen Costume Museum collection, part of the Bunka Gakuen Foundation.

In the Trianon, various types of kimonos and accessories are on display. They are worn for weddings, ceremonies and in everyday life. Dresses with cuts and patterns that attest to the kimono’s influence on western fashion are also displayed.

The exhibition continues in the gallery with kimonos embroidered or printed with animal or floral patterns: the four seasons, flowers, scenery, trees and plants, symbols of happiness.
