Flowered Earth-Toned Kimono Top

The heatwave — our own little slice of meteorological Paradise, weather more often imagined than granted — has ended, and temperatures have dropped by ten degrees. So to ward off any slight chill, I'm wearing a light kimono top, bought from Unicorn, over my short-sleeved shirt. It's this:

The pattern on the kimono isn't so different in colour distribution from the Liberty print shown in my last post. The motifs — the flowers — are much bigger, however, and I find something peculiarly satisfying about them when displayed on screen. Particularly, here, in the final two photos.

But at the same time, the sky is now 100% cloud, and I'm yearning to wear something more intense. And I can't think of anything more intense than Yves Saint-Laurent's "Homage to Pablo Picasso" dress shown halfway down this page? Does anyone feel like making me a top of the same shape, but in those colours?
