Description
 
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.

Fun retro pattern - pink with a gray batik-like crackle effect printed behind a black grid at the hem. The black grid lines seem meant to look like they were drawn with brush strokes - but it was all printed. We think this is cotton - perhaps a cotton-silk blend - but with a fun silk lining. It also has two ties of the same pink fabric, which suggests that the original jacket was made for wearing casually.

Sadly, there are several blemishes, but we feel it is 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.
