"Rooftops" Japanique Jacket

Classic red and black palette with one of our favorite motifs: hundreds of tiled roof tops! Like a photo taken from above (and taken many centuries ago!) the bird's eye perspective suggests a tightly scaled village just bustling with life and commerce.

We think the design was stenciled, which just adds to the awe... See video below for how these intricate stencils (called katagami) are made.

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.
