Vietnam Meets Antwerp

Kimono_custommadevietnam_Antwerp_outfitpost_komono (6 of 13)

Most of the time, the favorite pieces of my wardrobe are pieces I picked up from abroad. This blog post is a beautiful example of Vietnam meets Antwerp. This kimono is another one the pieces I had made in Hoi An and I am in love with it. As you can read in my post of the time, I wanted a powder pink blazer and a long kimono, but I just decided to combine the two instead of making separates. The fabrics for kimonos were not right and the fit for the blazers were not modern enough. That being said, it is not the easiest piece to combine. Might be because it has the tendency to look like a giant powder pink bathrobe. But as it is a powder pink kimono, all combinations are possible. For this day I went for ripped denim to counterbalance the soft color of the kimono.

As most of you, who have been following me, know, I’ve gotten back on that plane. Currently, I’m on Koh Tao, an island in the south of Thailand, for the second time. Read about my first time here (how different is the quality of the photos!). It’s a diving paradise (go figure) and I’ll be heading into the water tomorrow. Next to that it’s a very sociable island with a whole lot to do and also the home of the jewelry designer of A Little Dot.

Even though I’m no longer in Antwerp I still have a couple of nice photos, left from my time in the city, that I would like to post. I also still have a lot of interesting articles left from my previous six months in Asia. This will hopefully inspire you to visit the area itself. If there is a certain country you need tips about, let me know and I will try to sum them up on the blog! Anyway I hope you will like these posts as much as those about my next destinations.

    Heel tof! Ik vind de combi met gescheurde jeans geslaagd 🙂 de kimono zou ook heel leuk zijn op een jeansshortje en met enkellaarsjes/sneakers denk ik!
    Ga eens door je archief gaan van Azië, kwestie van niet nog meer op reis te willen haha

      Haha Lyn, zeker doen. Er moet nog veel opkomen maar er staat wel al een beetje op over Azië 🙂 Laat zeker weten wat je ervan vindt!

  • Zalig die Kimono!

  • Wauw mooi! Hoe zalig is het om zo alles op maat te kunnen laten maken, kon dat hier ook maar tegen een betaalbare prijs 😉

    • Marijs

      Het is ook niet super goedkoop hoor, maar natuurlijk wel goedkoper als hier. Gewoon leuk dat je je eigen ideeën tot leven kan zien komen 🙂
