FLYING BIRDY


FLYING BIRDY
A bright and poetic vintage Japanese Haori jacket in silk,
from late 1920s / early 1930s
reconstructed ....

Piece Unique


I created a new neckline . 
As you can see on the pictures the original neckline is at present on the back.


The new neckline , which is also the front of the jacket , is a wide stripe in different silks , embroidered with metallic threads , silks , sequins.
From a vintage sari. 
Hand-sewn on the Haori. 


I created "silk mosaics" to ornate the Haoris , 
to conceal small imperfections due to the old age .



They are ornaments .


Each mosaic silk is hand-sewn



Closed by vintage rusty orange grosgrain ribbon.




The jacket can be worn low-necked , as pictured here.
In this case the original neckline is low on the back :


The jacket worn with the neckline on the neck , 
changes the back , as you can see here :



And it changes the front too .


Length is approx 34" / 86 cm


Price 510 USD + shipping 40 USD

Thank you for your visit and interest in my work
