An architectural wonder! And a glimpse into homelife in Japan. This amazing jumble of patterning was created with hand-cut stencils and dyed by a masterful artisan. We love the many angles and color changes that create shadows and depth. Pinks, purples, reds, oranges.... Note the umbrellas, the light fixtures, the sliding doors, the storefronts...

And the drape of the silk is soft and comfy, though this jacket could be a dazzling display piece as well.

And there's a secret pocket on the right side only!

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. Japanique Jackets 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.
