"A moon obi on a purple Kimono with starlight. Maybe it isn’t supposed to be starlight, but it gives the impression of one of those time-lapse photos of the night sky to me. Very romantic and a little dreamy. I think this would be a gorgeous outfit to wear in September in prelude for the Moon festival." * kimonoswitch.com

This stunning (and I dont use that word lightly) butterfly yukata is patterned like a houmongi with a design on the lower edge as well; rare for a yukata and definitely a mark of modern design. It is disappointing that the concept is so cool but the wings are half covered by the placement of the obi. There's not much you can do about that except what was done here: putting more butterfly wings on the obi to make up for it.

お祭りだけじゃもったいない!この夏は「浴衣(ゆかた)」を楽しむ和美人に

金魚の半襟、可愛いですね。街歩きやお茶席用には半襟付きの上級の着こなしで、そしてお祭りなどでは半襟なしの気軽な着こなしで。2wayで楽しめるのも、大人のゆかたのいいところです。
