Gold Diggers of 1933 (1933) dir. Mervyn LeRoy
I haven’t seen many blue obi paired with black and pink, but this combination is really refreshing! The sky-blue/turquoise color really plays well with the orangey colors in the chrysanthemum motif and the darker blue brings out the rosy pinks and burgundy colors.
As you see in this piece, there are many ways to tie or loop your obijime to make it the focal piece of your outfit. A simple square knot doesn’t have to be the end. Because the cord is so tight, you can arrange the loose ends in waves, loops and loose knots that look very classy.
