Kimono & The Dragonflies

The Summer Dragonflies

 It’s summer in Japan soon and all the yukatas are out. And all the pastels from the kimonos images that I’ve collected have also inspired me to do something with pastels, but of course with a bit of an edge. Here is a see-through kimono with painted dragonflies flying. Underneath is yellow bustier and skirt that shows thru the kimono. With light blue obi and red & yellow corsages on the waist to add a lil bit of eclecticism. The back obi is a separate piece from the waist obi and it has a shape of ribbon with 2 tails coming down to the ground. She has a soft draped kimono on her but strong attitude to the look 😉
