oh mY FUKCING GOD????
Fun Fact: What Susato wears is not just a Kimono, but it includes a “Hakama” a traditional skirt/set of pants (there’s variations that could be described as either) which was actually barely worn by women, with the exception of Miko. (female Shinto priestesses and shamans).
Susato is described as “progressive” and her wearing a Hakama (which, as I said, is actually more commonly worn by men) might be a design choice in order to underline it.
On the other hand, the fact that Miko traditionally wore and wear Hakama and that Maya once stated that the Arisato/Fey-family originated as “worshipers of the gods” (most likely Miko), makes me wonder if Susato might not have a connection to the Feys after all. It all depends on whether or not she turns out to be related to Miko in the end, I guess.
Then again, it’s far more likely she just wears it because, again, it’s unconventional for a woman and thus just her taste.
