Kimonos which were once flashy have started to feature prominent retro patterns and colors in the past 2-3 years with the trend being large patterns with slightly less intense colors similar to the first half of the 20th century. This same trend has continued into this year but the colors have gotten somewhat brighter with styles from the latter half of the 1970s leaving a strong impression without the sparkle of the 1980s.

Even rental kimonos are conforming to these trends with many people wearing colors and patterns with a nostalgic vibe which are not too showy or too plain
