This painting is so beautiful – the first thing that struck me was the clean simplicity of it. So I was initially drawn to cool, somewhat architectural clothes, of course in blue…
More blue – still simple, clean, with silver accents.
I loved this sweater juxtaposed with a lace skirt- it felt like it captured the balance between the simplicity of the overall painting contrasted with the delicacy of the flowers. And there was no way I could resist chambray…
And even winter clothing can reflect the beauty of this painting. Soft sweaters, tweed, suede, all capture the gentle grace Katsushika Hokusai brought to life here.
