This very plain and simple black jacket isn't as plain and simple as it seems at first. The fabric is silk with a woven "bumpy?" pattern that creates depth as some of the pattern is raised and catches the light. It's versatile - great for parties or for work!

And there's a secret pocket on the right side only!

Each Japanique Jacket starts out as a vintage michiyuki, which is a narrow jacket with snap closures 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 and tacked the panels back to create lapels) to make a roomier, open, flowing jacket that can fit sizes 12-18. Japanique Jackets could also be crossed over and belted on a smaller sized person. These are all one-of-a-kind jackets, so sizing will vary slightly, see measurements given.
