Description
 
This Japanique vest - modified from a traditional Japanese vintage haori kimono jacket - a peachy color with a festive design of blossoms and large geometric shapes all woven with lacquered threads.

A floral family crest is embroidered in gold and silver threads and outlined in red - a rare embellishment!

There are several little, light blemishes scattered about but it's still a very cool tunic vest!

This Japanique Tunic Vest brings the styling of a kimono jacket into contemporary fashion! We simply removed the sleeves of a traditional haori (kimono jacket) and stitched the edging closed. The deep armholes allow for great ease of movement and the extra fabric at the shoulder creates almost a cap sleeve. It's a simple, versatile vest to throw on over jeans or to add pattern and style to solid colors underneath.

Like the haori it started as, the tunic vest is not meant to cross over but should be worn open to reveal a bit of what is worn underneath.


We do offer the traditional woven ties - called haori himo that can be hooked into the little fabric loops that you'll find on at the mid-front of the vest. They are sold separately (Add A Himo Pair ($5) option above). We'll select one that goes with this tunic vest. (If you'd like to choose your own, we have several FANCY ONES LISTED HERE.)
