The Beauty of Japanese Summer Flowers

We’re no strangers to a floral print or two here at kay me, and the stunning nature that surrounds us in Japan in every season is a constant source of inspiration for us, as well as for artists through the ages.

The hot and humid summer is a riot of colour if you know where to look: as well as the extensive countryside and large parks, balconies, side streets and even staircases in the Tokyo metropolis are home to flowers of all shapes and sizes.

Join us today as we look at a selection of summer flowers that can be found in Japan, and dresses that capture the essence of colourful floral beauty.

Hydrangeas – ajisai (Taisui Inuzuka)

Probably our favourite part of rainy reason, gorgeous hydrangeas in all shades of blue, as well as pinks, purples and even greens, can be found all over Tokyo during June.

Pick up on the variety of colours with our Lila and Utopia prints, or capture the elegance of shimmering petals in the rain with our one-shoulder shimmering blue dress.

Sunflowers – himawari (Sakai Hoitsu)

Iris – ayame (Shoson Ohara)

Brining summer colour lakes and ponds across Japan, the deep purple iris flowers is complimented by their delicate petals.

These frills and folds are echoed in the pattern of our Purple drape and Purple botanical waist-gathered dresses, while our 100% silk Labyrinth dress calls to mind the opulence of royal palaces with ornamental gardens.

Rose – bara (Ohno Bakufu)

Romantic and alluring or cute and charming? Roses can be spotted in all manner of colours, and our favourites have to be classic reds and pinks.

Our Black rose dress in 100% silk is a natural choice to celebrate the classic beauty of roses, or choose the flowing A-line shapes of our cache-coeur and flare silhouette dresses, the latter with charming ribbon detail that looks like an origami rose.

Keep your eyes open for a new and very special rose coming soon…
