Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week TOKYO 2014-2015 A/W
This same obi from several days ago is now paired with blue, red and yellow instead of pink and green—and once again it’s punching through the chaos of the traditional design to bring it right up to modern.
The kimono itself is utilizing a classic, almost childish sky blue with warm red and lemon yellow flowers—this color set is often seen in 7-5-3 Festival childrens’ kimono. But here the fuchsia obi is bringing lime green out of the kimono and into focus as well as acting as an anchor for all that light blue. I love how the circles of the obi are about the same size as the flowers on the furisode itself: this also helps to unify the outfit.
