Colour Observation #008

Wednesday, February 20, 2008

Japanese Yukata and Kimono are fantastic examples of very interesting colour schemes and patterns. There are just endless examples to be found that are nearly mesmerizing one you start to look through them all. I should first tell you what the difference is between a Yukata and Kimono. A Kimono is like an elaborate ball gown that takes hours to put on, not to mention additional time for hair, make-up, etc. Whereas, a Yukata is more like a dress. Men wear them too, but are not usually ornate, but black or brown -- basically the opposite of the female ones. Just like a tuxedo.

Here are two identical patterns with two different colour schemes.
