JAPANESE FASHION in THE PHILIPPINES — Filipina Having Fun in Kimono (3)
japanese fashion

Image by Okinawa Soba
The look in this girl’s eye, and the smile on her face are irresistible. One of the hard things about looking at old photographs is seeing people you’d like to know, while realizing you never can, and never will. I’ll bet this young lady made her world a little brighter, simply because she was in it.

**********************

While men fight their wars, and are always at enmity with one another, most women could care less (except when they start to see their own children getting blown up).

Further, they would just as soon marry one of the "enemy" as one of their own, and focus on fashion, kids, hobbies, the home, having their own business if possible, and having a nice life together with someone who loves and cares for them.

And why not ?

But more than anything, "girls just wanna have fun" !

The girls of the Philippines were no different than girls anywhere. Here’s a "baker’s dozen" of some old 1920s shots of sweet Filipina who went off to the photo studios of Manila and Baguio to have fun with their friends "dressing up" in Japanese Kimono.

It would only be a few short years before the Japanese soldiers showed up and made a mess of their lovely country, treating the Filipina who loved the kimono without much kindness or respect….not unlike the America soldiers before them.

These days in Japan, girls don’t generally wear the Kimono much any more. But, there are those rare special ceremonies and other occasions where, just like these Filipina, they have fun putting on a Kimono, and having their picture taken !

And even right here on flickr, you can see plenty of girls in the "Western Hemisphere" having fun with the Japanese kimono as well.

These 13 old photos from the Philippines are just a small sample of the many thousands of happy memories from those islands that have been lost to time, and remain hidden in boxes and attics around the world.

    Curly hair and kimono.
    That’s so strange.

    However… "One of the hard things about looking at old photographs is seeing people you’s like to know, while realizing you never can, and never will."

    It’s such a sad thought. Saddest if you think about the last young lady of this serie… maybe it’s true what American Indian said about photography: it drain the soul.

  2. Okinawa Soba says:

    Bananocrate — I never heard that about the American Indian sentiment. But, there was a time when many Japanese also thought that, and some older Japanese still think that way today. But is is always true that I would like to meet many people I see in the old photos. So, you are right…it is a sad thought….

  3. katyfernleigh says:

    My grandmothers, mother, aunts and mother-in-law all had photos taken of themselves as vivacious and beautiful young people, but I never knew any of them till that youthfulness had past. Photos don’t steal anyone’s soul: they’re a delicious reminder of a transient freshness, and they can confer a little bit of almost-immortality. This girl was/is very beautiful.

  4. Okinawa Soba says:

    Katy, those are some fine sentiments. I wonder how many years is "almost-immortality". Years ago, a collector friend of mine attended a lecture given on the permanence of our 19th Century and early 20th century photographs. He told me that the speaker said "….in 200 years, all of these photographs will have turned to dust….".

    Wearing Japanese kimono became a fad in 1925 when a diminuative Filipina opera singer, Jovita Fuentes played the role of Cio Cio San in Puccini’s Madame Butterfly in the spring of 1925 in Italy. That earned for her international recognition and a great following in the Philippines.

    She has a confident and intelligent look. I guess she is a real violinist.
    My son plays the violin and he says that she holds it correctly.

    The arched bridge looks authentic Japanese
    But the backdrop shows European balusters
