“Blood and Roses is the expression of a deeper significance of roses, typically happy and pretty. Often in history the image of the rose was more connected with blood and wars, in relation to political conflict, religious strife, and power struggles. This is what was interesting to me this time.”

—Rei Kkawakubo
