Well, I have plum blossom kimono and purple kimono, but together? I am not sure on the blossoms but this furisode seems to be my only option, coupled with a nice purple obi would suffice.
Or possibly this furisode? Is that the correct blossom I see on the left?
I don’t have any red ‘day’ kimono really, as they don’t seem to match the aesthetics in the UK and there are not a lot kicking around on the vintage circuit.
So how about the UK? I speak on the seasons for Japan but how about on my native soil?
For February I would choose the snowdrop. Several gardens in the UK open specially in February for visitors to admire the blanket of white.
I missed a January recommendation, but I would say ferns and pheasants mean the start of the new year for me. Memories of a New Years Day walk in the woods from my childhood.
This kimono motif was almost made for those memories, and its why I brought it.
For me this kimono means the new year and not pine.
