"Fantastic Fall Collage" Japanique Jacket

Asymmetry rocks in this jacket with a collaged design at the hem - something we rarely see in a jacket (though it is common in formal full length kimono....).

The colors are so chic - tertiary shades of bronze, green, gold and rust. And the collage elements at the hem are intricately patterned with accent colors delicately added. The rest of the jacket is covered with a repeated geometric grid that calls out the colors and imagery in the collage.

The fabric has a crepe texture that may be chirimen silk or crepey rayon.

Don't miss the secret pocket, it's hidden in the right front panel seam!
________________________
Each Japanique Jacket starts with a vintage michiyuki, which is a narrow jacket with snap closures that was meant to be worn on top of a kimono. Most vintage michiyuki won't fit larger frames, so we modified the traditional garment slightly (removed the snaps, tacked the panels back to create lapels) to create a roomier, open, flowing jacket that can fit sizes 12-18 or possibly larger. These are all one-of-a-kind jackets, so sizing will vary slightly. See video below on the various types of kimono jackets.
