Opening at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on June 7, 2022, Kimono Style: The John C. Weber Collection will trace the transformation of the kimono from the late 18th through the early 20th century, as the T-shaped garment was adapted to suit the lifestyle of modern Japanese women. The exhibition will feature a remarkable selection of works, including a promised gift of numerous modern kimonos from the renowned John C. Weber Collection of Japanese art, as well as highlights from The Costume Institute’s collection. More than 60 kimonos, including men’s and children’s wear, will be displayed alongside Western garments, Japanese paintings, prints, and decorative art objects.
