This Japanique Tunic Vest converts a vintage Japanese kimono jacket into contemporary fashion! We simply removed the sleeves of a traditional haori (kimono jacket) voila - instant easy-to-wear accent vest. 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.

This vest is a dazzling bright hot fuchsia pink - quite a show-stopper at any gathering. Perfect over black pants and a white top. It's longer than more contemporary haori but still likely from the 1950s. Gorgeous ribbon and curling screen pattern in the jacquard.

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 hidden under the collar piece 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.
