This stunning (and I dont use that word lightly) butterfly yukata is patterned like a houmongi with a design on the lower edge as well; rare for a yukata and definitely a mark of modern design. It is disappointing that the concept is so cool but the wings are half covered by the placement of the obi. There's not much you can do about that except what was done here: putting more butterfly wings on the obi to make up for it.
New Type Kimono: Maximum Princess
And Kimono Princesses sometimes wear jewelry. (There's actually a reason Japanese women don't have a big history of wearing rings, necklaces and pins – kimono fabrics were often more costly than jewels, and nobody wanted to risk something snagging or AI YI YI putting a hole in the priceless fabrics. But new style kimonos aren't expensive – most of them are vintage – so even cheap costume jewelry is safe to wear.)
