This elegant silk kimono by designer Michiko Kasugai captures the rich abundance of warm pink flowers that attracts cherry blossom viewers by their thousands each year.

The cherry blossom season is so short, usually lasting about two weeks, that there is a only a brief window in which this kimono could be displayed to its full glory, making it all the more precious a treasure.
