ABBA ended their last tour in Japan in 1980, finishing off with their final concert at Budokan, Tokyo. Little did we know then that a few years later the world famous pop group would take a break - never to perform together again. The tour was an unforgettable experience for the Japanese people who had longed for these concerts since the promotion tour in Tokyo in 1978. To celebrate the Japanese culture the group's costume designer Owe Sandström created a kimono, with flowers from the Swedish flora, for each member of ABBA. The outfits were used during the promotion tour, and today you can see two of the originals on display at ABBA The Museum.

ABBA The Museum are now happy to present an exclusive collection produced together with costume designer Owe Sandström, inspired by the original ABBA kimonos.

The motif decorating the Agnetha cup is the beautiful wild chervil flower (Anthriscus sylvestris).

The motif of the Frida cup is decorated with the sheer little chickweed flower (Stellaria media).
