Floral series

The floral series - orchid, rose, chrysanthemum, peony, and iris - appeared over the year from March 2006 to March 2007, an extravagantly lush set of designs... And then others have been added from time to time.

1000: Stand like a peony

The title is part of an old saying, which describes the perfect female figure: "Stand like a shakuyaku, sit like a botan, and walk like a lily." This does not work very well in English, because the first two are both varieties of peony: shakuyaku is Paeonia lactiflora, or the common garden peony, and botan is Paeonia suffruticosa, or the Chinese tree peony. But Haruyo makes everything clear: not only with the floral kimono, but also by surrounding the figure with a mass of peony blooms.

500: Simple beauty

The modern hairstyle shows this to be a contemporary beauty, and spring is the setting given by the yellow yamabuki blossoms ("kerria" in horticultural circles).

Morita Haruyo

Signature

Haruyo: signature and seal

The artist Morita Haruyo studied both Japanese art and kimono design, and she combines these with elements of her own Western-influenced technique. (She travelled to London in 1977, exactly the year I [Brian Chandler] first came to Tokyo.)

Morita is her family name: she follows the tradition of signing - and sealing - paintings with her given name only.

Note: The translations of titles are mine.

Other kimono puzzles

We now have the complete Haruyo catalog in stock, except for the slight delay in getting the latest displayed on the website.
