Why I design Samurai Mode series ?

KUDEN Designer Interview part1 (Excerpt from our brand book)

〜Why I design Samurai Mode series ?〜

First inspiration for Samurai Mode series is from my mother. 

My mother was passed away and when I sorted my mother ’s personal effects I found her previous kimono and also my Haori-bakama that I wore at child ceremony called “shichigosan”.

My family was not rich but my mother handled and wore very carefully her kimono. 

I remembered that memory when I saw hers. I put her in coffin with her favorite kimono.She loves her kimono.

Such her behavior may make me liked kimono and thought I want to wear but it needs a technique called “kitsuke”, how to wear kimono” and kitsuke is difficult for me, almost modern Japanese too, so I don’t have chance to wear kimono. 

I think that is really unfortunate.
