Hi everyone, it’s Yuko from kay me’s atelier team here! This week I’d like to tell you all about our new Christmas floral print…
December is always the busiest time of year, so I want everyone to feel good and have a gorgeous time! How about a new dress as a reward?
We wanted to make a beautiful floral print with a lot of tones in it.
From this we created the design, although colour is such a important factor… What colour is suitable for December?
What colour would you like to wear for Christmas? We made a lot of practice prints as usual.
kay me atelier staff had fun playing with the designs!
As Christmas is suddenly just around the corner, I recommended planning everything at double speed.
As a result of our intensive testing, we decided on pink flowers on an off-white base, and blue flowers on a black base.
As these dresses are made for winter, we chose a very soft and warm fabric that’s good for cold days.
The fine adjustments continued even after we decided on pink and blue, for example we tried changing the size of the flowers – the impression created was so different even when changed by just a few percent!
We also tried adjusting the tone a little to more mint and lemon colours, as even though this dress is made with mid-winter in mind of course we’d like to be able to wear it all year round.
Changing the colour of the stamen and pollen also makes the print look very different.
I named these dresses Victoria, Stephanie and Caroline – I think English names sound so elegant!

Until next time… Yuko.
