This Japanique vest - modified from a traditional Japanese vintage haori kimono jacket - is a simply elegant addition to your wardrobe. A very light purple color is the first thing you see, followed by the shimmer of the bamboo leaves woven into the silk. Don't miss the carefully embroidered ivy crest at the back of the neck.

This Japanique Tunic Vest brings the styling of a 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.

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 on at the mid-front of the vest. They are sold separately (Add A Himo Pair ($5) option above). We'll select one that goes with this tunic vest. (If you'd like to choose your own, we have several FANCY ONES LISTED HERE.)
