Description
 
Classic black, red and white combination, but there's so much more going on. The fabric is a woven honeycomb grid with each cell patterned in one of several traditional motifs. Then floating on top is a series of stemmed florals - perhaps camelia? - in white or red. The jacket is a heavier weight - a weight with warmth - and has a stiffer, almost brocade texture. It may soften over time and with dry cleaning but is still very wearable as is.

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.
