AURA

    Sometimes it pays to wander off the beaten track, where some of the most interesting finds can be one left turn off a main thoroughfare. This is the case for AURA, a sumptuous kimono boutique located in Berlin’s hippest vintage district, Neukoelln. Founded in 2012 by Amundra Gantoemoer, who became inspired by a kimono that a friend brought back as a gift from Japan, AURA showcases vintage kimonos dating from the 1920s to 1980s - all sourced from rural Japanese provinces and featuring unique backstories. Gantoemoer pairs these high-quality vintage pieces with a “modern twist,” like Suzanna Kuhlemann’s 1940s-inspired swimwear collection, and other items by young contemporary designers. Wishing to steer away from stuffy, traditional modes of Japanese ceremonial attire, Gantoemoer instead recommends pairing the kimonos with leather bags and trainers. Her customers, who range from fashion designers and stylists to basketball players, film stars and singers, often spend hours trying on a selection of kimonos in order to find their perfect match.Show lessRead more
