"Summery Floral" Japanique Jacket

Bright and bold orange silk jacket with hand-drawn grasses and small florals that extend from the hem.

Look closely and you can see the speckle created from a wax resist technique called roketsuzome. The video below shows a
contemporary Japanese artist demonstrating the process.

Don't miss the secret pocket, it's hidden in the right front panel seam!

________________________
Each Japanique Jacket starts with a vintage michiyuki, which is a narrow jacket with snap closures that was 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, tacked the panels back to create lapels) to create a roomier, open, flowing jacket that can fit sizes 12-18 or possibly larger. These are all one-of-a-kind jackets, so sizing will vary slightly. See video below on the various types of kimono jackets.
