Awase is a lined kimono, exclusively worn between October and May (from Autumn to Spring in Japan). In hiro eri, the collar is wide and its inside is not sewn to the body. When put on, the lapel can be folded in two to feature the widht desired and fall naturally toward the erisaki (the bottom of the collar). It is used in many women’s kimonos.
Haori is a kimono jacket, quite long, with the deep kimono sleeves, traditionally worn over the kimono. A haori is not worn with an obi or any sash around it. It can be closed edge to edge with a himo, which is a pair of front ties that are fastened to the inner edge. Men's haori are usually plain on the outside, either with or without mon, but often have very decorative linings hidden inside.
Egasumi are stylized clouds that look like fat lines with rounded corners, representing a hazy mist.
