I think the style of this kimono is very striking as there is quite a contrast between the pale washed out pastelly purples and lilacs and the dark black background. I like the way tone is portrayed in the flower pattern because there is a use of darker colour to create a sense of tone and makes the design look 3D.

Japanese Fashion - Kimono- NOTE THE SHAPE especially the layering at the v-neck with thin silks and the petal furling of the robe and skirt. Also, sleeves add an interesting scarf/shawl/wrap dimension and could move interestingly.

I would like to get this Kimono as a gift for Pumpkin. This would fit her perfectly.
