Unless you’ve been living under the particularly large Japanese rock known as Mount Fuji, you’ll likely have noticed that kimono-style pieces have been breaking through as a menswear trend this season. Along with Japanese streetwear brands such as Wacko Maria including embroidered kimono-infused tops and jackets in SS19 collections, labels such as visvim and Maharishi have been championing kimono-style bomber jackets and coats.

It’s easy to see why — the kimono has a classic but modern appeal that transcends time. The cut is flowy but fashion-forward, especially when made from sophisticated materials or featuring intricate embroideries and bold patterns. And the styles haven’t been going unnoticed by some of the most well-dressed celebrities on our radar, from the late David Bowie all the way up to Kendrick Lamar, who performed at the 2018 Grammys wearing a Craig Green kimono jacket.

Now, for those wanting to add an on-trend touch to their ’fits, we’ve rounded up some of the best kimono-style pieces we’ve come across in recent times, including picks from Japanese labels such as Maharishi, visvim, and Kapital as well as Western brands including Fear of God and Universal Works. What’s more, we have choices for every budget, with options starting at only $79.
