I didn’t manage to catch the Japonica kimono event, so I decided to treat myself to a new kimono to celebrate the new year. One of my favourite stores is Sakka’s Studio, and one of their releases for 2016 is this beautiful furisode (long sleeved kimono) with an ume (plum blossom) design. It is available in green, purple (which I’m wearing) and brown. Each of these is a muted shade in harmony with the continued darkness of winter, whilst the plum blossom gives hope for spring.
