[Vector] Made in Japan Volume 4 : Uchikake 「内掛け」

Made in Japan Volume 4 is here

Its time for Japanese fashion, the Uchikake 「内掛け」. Well before that, i will ask you, everyone knows Kimono right ? So Uchikake is a type of Kimono, a Kimono for a bride, in western its like a wedding gown. The form is like Furisode 「振袖」with long sleeved, but furisode only worn by unmarried woman in Seijin Shiki [The coming age ceremonies], or worn by unmarried female relatives of the bride at weddings and wedding receptions.

Using Uchikake is more complicated than furisode, there’s a lot part that need to tied inside the Kakeshita, lot of decoration and detail.  Usually the color of  uchikake is White, but there’s a lot of color beside white, such as Red, Black, Gold, and Blue, like furisode, there so much motif for uchikake, like crane, sakura, pines, flowing water, fish, and many more.

But unlike furisode, the bottom of Uchikake is padded to trail along the floor, so when the woman bride walk, they need to lift the lower part of uchikake.

 It’s time for ‘Geta’ 「下駄」. Geta is a resemble of Wooden clogs and flip flops, with elevated wooden base and a fabric thong to make our feet had a strong grip to the geta itself. Usually geta worn with Kimono, but sometimes in summer Japanese peoples use it with Yukata (Kimono for summer) or with modern T-shirt. Not only in summer, geta also used in winter or in rain, because the wood can make our feet keep dry. There’s 6 type of Geta, depend on the height and form of the wooden base, but Japanese people usually used geta with 2 wooden base and 5 cm height.
