COLOR OF LAYERED COSTUME STYLE
The delicate changes in nature during the four seasons endowed the Japanese with a fine and sensitive mind.It can be seen clearly in the Japanese costumes from ancient times,in which the beautiful tones of the seasons are reflected in the color scheme of costumes.
In the 10th century (the midlle of the HEIAN ERA of Japan),the costumes of the court nobles became free and loose-bodied in the transition from a Chinese style to a Japanese one.And with a style of building made suitable for summer,a layered style was developed for purposes of adjusting the layers of robes in accordance with temperature of the season,or expressing the charm of elegant composition.First of all,they appreciated the color combination of cloth and lining,so that they put a name to the combination of these two monochromes.Or they determined an appellation of the new color for layered style with sensitivity to beauty,by which they could communicate with each other.And then,they extended this method from color combination of cloth and lining of a single robe,to the color arrangement of several layered robes.Furthemore,the color combination of warp and weft of brocaded fabrics was also categorized into the color of layered style.They classified these color combinations by four seasons and others(which were used at all seasons)to express the seasonal beauties of nature.
The name of such a color scheme was called "KASANE IROME"(layered colors)since around the 17th century (the EDO ERA of Japan).It is a coinage which did not exist in the HEIAN ERA.The word "IROME"(color tone)originally had a meaning of "article" or "item".Apart from this question,the color of layered style was a symbolic expression of natural beauty,as well as an application of the atmosphere created by its name,to the extent that it became an expression of literary tastes.
