私の父方祖母は庭に牡丹を植え、毎週末祖父宅に戻るとつぼみからだんだん花びらを広げて見事に咲いていくのが楽しみでした。史真が選んだ20才の晴れ着です。着物の裾の方から少しずつ牡丹が花開いていく柄に祖母が愛した花の思い出と重なり、私はこの柄に魅せられました。

My paternal grandmother had peonies in her garden, and as a young girl I looked forward to visiting my grandparents’ home every weekend to see how the buds of peonies grew and opened, gradually spreading their petals. When I was twenty, I chose this one patterned with peonies as my best kimono, and wore it on my Coming of Age day. I have always been enchanted by the way in which the peonies gradually blossom, as the pattern progresses from above the hemline toward the upper part of the kimono. It reminds me of the flowers my grandmother loved.
