While winter might be the season of snow, skiing and cozying up under kotatsu (Japanese heated table with blanket), here at kay me we’re hard at work preparing for the next year ahead and enjoying the beautiful nature that surrounds us in Japan.
Cherry blossom is emblematic of spring, but don’t forget that winter has its own share of beautiful blooms and pretty petals too!
Today, kay me stylists pick their favorite winter flowers and provide a selection matching dresses for a subtle taste of the beauty of Japan…
With stunning petals in shades of red and pink, camellia flowers bring a much-needed burst of color to the winter landscape.
Our Tsubaki dresses are of course the perfect match! With a pretty camellia print in both red and blue, pair these dresses with simple but striking accessories for special occasions. For even more color, explore our solid color jersey dresses in rich reds and pinks.
One of our favorite signs of late autumn, the brilliant gold of gingko leaves creates a living carpet of leaves across the city as we say farewell to fall.
Capture the glow of gingko with our dresses in yellow floral prints, and wear with contrasting knitwear to stay warm all season long. Our silk dress in warm gold creates a stunning impression, and our patented washable silk means there’s no need to worry about dry-cleaning and more time to enjoy your special events.
Maple trees (momiji)
The last signs of the gorgeous autumn foliage are still with us, and something that we look forward to every year.
Bring the warmth and color of maple leaves into you wardrobe with our charming Rice Shower series in red and green, as well as our solid color jersey dresses in suitably leaf-like orange. kay me stylists suggest pairing these dresses with with knits and outerwear in black and beige tones for an extra fall feeling even in the middle of winter.
Plum blossom (ume)
The early cousin of cherry blossom, plum blossom’s gentle rounded petals let us know that spring is near and sure to grace us again soon.
For a true taste of traditional Japanese style, our 100% pure silk jersey Hana Asagi dress with shell-like bust design brings to mind delicate flowers against a cool winter sky. For a nod to the lovely variations of colors that plum blossom can be found in, take a look at our range of pink and purple dresses, from dark to light, and pair with matching kay me select stoles for a look that effortlessly channels the soft yet stark contrasts of plum blossom.
