Wearing Propaganda

 A Japanese kimono depicting and glorifying war

with a full striking military scene.

In the years leading up to WW2, Japan was in deep-seated pro-militarism mode

with the third largest navy in the world.

The inner kimono revealed this hyped state to encourage the men and boys

and indoctrinate with adventurous depictions of military glory.

This rare upper kimono available at Hot Moon Collection
