The sun is shining down on us in Tokyo, and Japan is getting in the swing of the season. Summer in Japan brings to mind watermelon and shaved ice, uchiwa (traditional Japanese fans) and yukata (light kimono), fireflies and the sounds of cicadas and furin (glass wind chimes). But that’s not all – summer events such as garden parties, weddings and evenings in the city are as much a part of Japanese life as elsewhere around the world.
Here at kay me, we’ve put together a top selection of our premium signature dresses that we know you’ll love this summer. Whether you’re off on holiday or staying closer to home, these versatile dresses will have you eager to get outside and show off your summer style.
Make an impression: Inspired by the grace and freedom of impressionist paintings, our Monet print has proved to be a popular choice this summer. Available in both hand-gathered jersey and chiffon maxi style, this unique print will have you feeling at home among the flowers.
Pretty in pink: What could be more in the vacation mood than a palm tree print? Our Wonder Earth dress in pink looks just as striking by the pool as exploring the city. Juicy pink grapefruit looks mouthwatering against summer skin, pair with white accessories to bring out this bold colour.
In the navy: The fluttering tiered skirt of this V-neck dress and hand-placed Swarovski crystals define kay me’s distinctive style. The exposed back zip adds a touch of edge to this special dress.

Hand-gathered pleats at the waist make our olive green dress sophisticated for social events as well as for the office with a kay me jacket.
