Kimono and other traditional clothes in historical films are never pink. Even the word pink (ピンク) comes from English. But now Japanese girls and women are obsessed by pink clothes and accessories. When did this trend start ? In the 1950's ? From Meiji ? Is that another Western import like salarymen's black suits ?
