As summer approaches, it only seems right to look at what we really want to buy before it properly kicks off. What did we see on the catwalk that we have to have in our wardrobes? Shirtdresses – Yes. Wide brim hats – Yes. Kimonos – definitely!
Whether it was Gucci’s beautiful Japanese prints, Marni’s boxy long length versions or MM6 Maison Martin Margiela's wrap around coats, we have seen the kimono evolve this summer, and whilst we will always be drawn to that classic paisley printed, fringed version, this season there is a little more variety if you like things slightly more pared-back. Check out our top picks for the best kimonos that are available to buy right now and tips on how to wear them.

Margiela keeps things simple with white, but adds monochrome printed detail for a clean finish.
