A work on a vintage Japanese Haori
Piece Unique

It is difficult to give a specific date for the Japanese clothes . If you look on books or other information sources , the date ranges are rarely specific , but between 20 to 30 years for one dating. I have many documentations about them , I try to be the most exact I can in the dates .
I think this model can be dated early Showa period , middle 1930s / early 1940s

I embroidered Chrysanthemum with wool threads , in 2 shades of green .
2 longs beaded pendants , from the neckline , can be knotted on the front , to close the Haori.

The lampwork glass beads ( amber color ) are from India .
The reds , are in wood , from France , used in the 1930s to make Rosary.
The tiny light green are vintage , in faceted glass , 1950s.

I created a new neckline . 
As you can see on the pictures , the original neckline is at present on the back.
The Haori , which is originally worn on top of kimonos , as outside jacket , to protect them , never has the neckline close to the neck , but little on the back , on the kimonos necklines.
Which changes its shape on the body .
By moving the original neckline , I wanted to accentuate this original way to wear it .

Chrysanthemum is made in a magnificent silk , woven flowers and geometric pattern , in a purple reddish shades , printed crazy chrysanthemums red , white , pink , with a silver line .

The new neckline is a stripe in Ikat silk , who is finished by the 2 longs beads pendants .
