"Castle in the Clouds" Japanique Jacket

Fantastic for display or to wear. A painted scene of a castle gate and a corner guard station, and both seem to peek out from what might be stylize pine trees - or are they also look like clouds? Look closely at the castles to really appreciate the brushwork.

The soft purples and pinks give this a very feminine feel despite the somewhat masculine castle motif. A creamy, soft silk with a smooth drape.

A small grouping of light blemishes at back top left and front top left, see photos.

Each Japanique Jacket starts out as a vintage michiyuki, which is a narrow jacket with snap closures 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 and tacked the panels back to create lapels) to make a roomier, open, flowing jacket that can fit sizes 12-18. Our Japanique Jacket could also be crossed over and belted on a smaller sized person. These are all one-of-a-kind jackets, so sizing will vary slightly, see measurements given. See video below on the various types of kimono jackets.
