Description
 
Like new, this fun and funky summer jacket is dochugi style, which crosses over in the front like a kimono but closes with little ties on the inside and outside. The color is a coppery pink and black and the design is a wavy grid. We think there's a cool retro vibe to it.

This is a dochugi style jacket, which crosses over in the kimono style (unlike the haori style which hangs open in the front). But instead of needing an obi it closes with inner and outer ties, which can be tied loosely to allow for a more generous fit. Where haori are best for up to a size 12, dochugi can fit up to a size 18+.

Layering is so important for kimono-wearing - even in the hot and humid days of summer in Japan. Vintage summer dochugi typically have an open weave that allows cooling air to flow between the layers, and often have a design woven on the back.

These light weight jackets are great to throw on when you want something over your shoulders as you move from the summer heat into an air conditioned restaurant, theater, or office. They're also modest cover ups at the beach or poolside. Even though they tend to be dark colors, the open weave is really cooling. We like them over a little black dress for a night on the town.
