Day 2 Centaur
Based on an Indian wedding dress I saw that inspired this for me.

Nagas. Who knew they’d be so fun to draw? Especially with their colors. Also I really like doing the henna designs.
Okay that’s a unique piece~!
100% silk with a WOOD pattern.
The kimono itself has no red in it (it’s all shades of gold and brown) but adding this orangey brick-red was a great idea to bring some interest (and the “feeling” of color) to the coordination. The red tabi in particular is cool, tying the whole outfit together.

Great autumn set from Mamechiyo carries a richness that only perfect color matching can.
The green of the kimono is slightly dulled (unexpected from Mamechiyo, who mostly deal in saturated solids), but the golds in the haori and the obi are so bright and clear they manage to pick up the green without making it dark or washed out. I’m almost certain it’s because of the red obiage, which mediates between the obi and the forest green, and because the leaves in the haori are full of red-orange.
Golden brown leaves on the juban eri are also a really cool touch, and using a cream collar that matches the cream of the haori is also smart. This is taking small bits of color from one layer and using it again in a far distant layer. The effect is like stitching the color together through the whole outfit.
I think the obi could look cheap and flat if it didn’t have the obidome accessory and the chain of the haori across it to break up the tablecloth-ness of the fabric.
The obidome is here:
and is available as a ‘wristband-slash-obidome’ for 2,730 yen.
Cat kimono in graphic black and white, this is too good!
The obi is also very fun. The whole kimono is done in achromatic tones of black, brown, etc., but she has chosen to bring in saturated violet and blue with this sudden obiage, and the tiny beads on the obijime accessory also have bits of blue in them. Blue is an interesting choice. I would have assumed continuing the ‘safari’ theme with greens, yellows or red. Unexpected colors like this give a lot of interest to an ensemble.
