Summer Kimonos in Sept. in Europe

I traveled Mediterranean with 5 kimonos. Kimono regulations do not permit to wear Summer Kimono in September. If you wear summer cotton kimono or hemp kimono after September 1st, old strict Japanese lady walk straight up to you and warn you.
But who knows it in Europe!!? The temperature was around 75F-90F, 25C-30C in early September. I enjoyed summer Kimonos. Guys who met me around Mediterranean, thank you for telling my kimono was beautiful.
