Our Limited-Edition, one-of-a-kind Reflective Merino Kimono Collection was created in support of the Zero Waste Movement. The Collection took root when we decided to "rescue" and re-purpose 17lbs of reflective merino wool scarves that our factory was planning to discard. Each Kimono has been carefully pieced together and assembled by expert tailor and designer, Yasmine Oezelli, the @travelingtailor , transforming the soft reflective merino wool into elegant wearable works of art.
The ARUBINO (Albino) Kimono is rare, indeed. The only light grey Kimono in the whole collection, it is traversed by subtle stripes of 3M reflective yarn that awake to startling effect in a car’s headlights or the paparazzi’s flash. The striking graphic combines iconic and prolific elements of NYC, such as the Statue of Liberty, the Manhattan Bridge, the Chrysler Building, and the chevrons of our Vespertine Haute Réflecture® logo, a figurative love letter to the city that never sleeps. Open the Kimono to find a striking reflective graphic label that shines just for you, supporter of the #fashionrevolution!
You will feel so good about and in the upcycled luxuriously soft ARUBINO Kimono. It is as unique as you are. The ultimate hygge wear for curling up next to the fire, it easily transitions into your favorite new Spring jacket. The ARUBINO Kimono comes with a reflective elastic tie belt.
