Olympic champion and world champion Alina Zagitova The Japanese Grand Tour continues:
• From the end of May to mid-June she participated in the Fantazis on ice show (together with Medvedev, Tuktamyshevoy, etc.);
• Now – a short visit to Dream On Ice (ahead of him was another throw in Canada and an unusual straight line with Vladimir Putin);
• In one month – a new trip to Osaka, Niigatu and Nagoya at The Ice Show.
Japan stumbles from Aline; The most populous skater on the planet is also delighted with local fans and culture. Today Zagitova has released a photo in yukati – traditional Japanese clothing.
Literally, they are a "bath", lightweight kimono without strap – made of hemp, cotton or cotton, with flat seams and wide sleeves. In fact, the Japanese (both women and men) carry yukates in other scenarios: at home, on vacation, out in the heat.
These kimonos are conventionally divided into everyday (empty) and solemn – in this very Alin. The big set includes ghetto sandals (always on bare feet), cotton juban (underwear) and obi (strap). Plus blower and jumper bag.
Today, other disciples of Etery Tutberidze have also put on Yukats: Alena Kostornaya, Alexandra Trusova and Anna Shcherbakova.
A year ago Evgenia Medvedeva during the Japanese tour also posed in yukati.
Two years ago – in traditional kimono.
It is important to distinguish them: kimono is an official dress, which is also difficult to donate without help. Kimono is a set (usually made of silk by order, cost – $ 5,000) and status: every copy is like a masterpiece. Yukata is a bathrobe that is available in every Japanese (within $ 150): simple, relatively inexpensive, versatile and comfortable.
