This Japanique vest - modified from a traditional Japanese vintage haori kimono jacket - seems to nod to the wallpapers that were popular in the 1950s or earlier. Simple florals, some in vases, with arabesque curls - an homage to a simpler time.

A cream background with blues and a red coral shading - again, very traditional. There's a small bit of minor blemishing in a couple spots - see photos.

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.)
