swinging sleeves

Okay, so I don't know my kimonos as well as I might, but as far as I know these long sleeves are for the young and unmarried.

 

I think (I'm almost certainly wrong) this is a furisode (振袖), which is a formal kimono that girls wear during their coming-of-age ceremonies.

 

Day Three set here.

 

Entire Japan collection here.
