Chocolate and Kimono

If you haven’t gotten your sweets fix after this weekend’s festivities, check out the world’s first chocolate kimono.  New York-based chocolatier MarieBelle will reveal the kimono at its Kyoto store later this month.  While not an edible or even cocoa-scented garment in its final form, the kimono is painted with a dye rich in white chocolate.  “A sweet chocolate scent filled the air in the process of dying” said the wife of kimono designer Nobuaki Tomita.  The kimono’s pattern features a brown and blue cherry blossom display on a beige background.
