Kikuri means chrysanthemum in Japanese. In Japanese culture, chrysanthemums are seen as a flower that represents fortune and rebirth; the flower can be found on the royal seal, and is featured prominently in traditional art. In Western culture, chrysanthemums represent death. These opposite interpretations are quite striking, but also have similar meanings, as death entails rebirth. In the Kikuri Crop Top, chrysanthemums bloom around trellises of vines, while buds around them wilt and bloom.
