Chikage’s Story 3

This kimono was in one of collections of the most famous antique kimono collector in Japan who I respect. I love her collection and always went to her exhibitions. After she passed away, when I visited her antique kimono shop, her daughter sold her collection. I love purple. Actually, I bought my first antique kimono here and it was also purple. It can’t be helped that the hem got damaged when I wore it, but I keep taking care of it. I enjoy alcoholic drinks while seeing this beautiful image on this kimono, too. I like to read some novelists who are very good at describing the women in kimono in the Taisho and early Showa eras. I always wear this kimono when there are events concerning such novelists. At that time, I wear an antique obi which the kimono collector picked out for me.
