Best Vintage Kimono Merchant: Swoon OTR

Best Vintage Kimono Merchant

Inside the womb-like interior of lingerie store Swoon OTR, shoppers will find a selection of ethical intimates in earthy nudes and pale pastels, plus pasties, phallic geode chakra rubs, personal grooming products and musky-scented South American Palo Santo wood to burn to cleanse your energy, enhance creativity and bring good fortune. Owner Melissa Lieb is committed to the exploration and exaltation of all things feminine and believes in worshipping your body with slow fashion and meaningful objects. This is why she scours the physical and digital world for beautiful vintage silk kimonos. Her hand-picked collection of both long and short printed robes can be worn in the bedroom, boardroom or out to eat in OTR, and will help you tap into your eccentric yet impeccable sense of fashion or give you something glamorous to wear while casting nature spells for the sacred feminine. Swoon OTR, 1421 Vine St., Over-the-Rhine, 513-404-8541, facebook.com/swoon.otr.
