The large mod flower designs on these furisode mark them out as vintage-modern. Furifu has done a great job combining “clashing/matching” patterns and colors, all in the same size and family, but with different textures. There is no resting place for the eye so you keep moving all around the coordination. This is very youthful (which is the whole point of a furisode!).
Note in the first coordination the obi is tied in front—this is a modern styling that is implying sexiness. With the long loose hair and tall zori she is challenging the formality of the garment itself.

The motif on the haori is camellia, a common winter flower. Shimaiya has described this outfit as “powder pink”, an appellation I think is well earned!
