Jewelry Fashion Fix: Going Gaga for the Modern GeishaBy
Ready to learn a little Chinese? Then cool kanji-covered jewelry is the way to go.
If you like the look of artistic, old-school kimono fabrics as much as I do, then you’ll love these gently updated takes on traditional kimono print. Peacocks, fans, florals, and more create the perfect blend of old and new.
Sculpturally Cool Coif
One of the neatest hairstyles right now is the sculptural, geisha inspired top bun, and it’s even more fun when accented with some cute little hair accessories. The best thing about stealing this style? When it comes to ornamentation, the more the merrier.
Geisha styling and Japanese Ukiyo-e art have been major influences in modern tattooing for decades, along with the Japanese full body tattoo style known as Horimono. One of the prettiest and most easily translatable elements common to these art forms is the koi fish, or wild carp, a symbol of perseverance and courage.
The re-envisioned geisha aesthetic is a blend of the best traditional color palettes and motifs with modern silhouettes, lines, and imagery. One key element that brings this feminine style together? Flowers.
