This Japanique Tunic Vest converts a vintage Japanese 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.

Light pink background silk with an urushi (lacquered threads) design of clouds woven in gold, red, and blue. Lots of shimmer! Great for a party or evening event.

There's a spot on the back collar and a bit of mottling in the silk (common for lighter colored vintage kimono) but still quite wearable.

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 at the mid-front of the vest. To add it to your purchase, click "Add A Himo Pair" option above and we'll select one that goes with this tunic vest. (If you'd like to choose your own, we have several more fancy himo.
