A work on a Japanese Haori jacket from early Showa period :
1930s / early 1940s

// Sold Out //

A very thin crepe silk for this haori , with typical style of pattern from the thirties.

I transformed its shape with an additional up-cycled panel of Indian fabric embroidered.
This panel is lined with an Indian crepe silk , the same used to create the tunic "Pierrot D'Automne".

Closure in front with 2 ribbons embroidered .

The additional panel is a mixture of different materials , as cotton , lurex , velvet , as you can see on the photos .

The jacket can be worn in a style "shawl", as shown on the preceding photos , with the neckline more open .

The second proposition is to wear it as a "normal" jacket , with the neckline around the neck .

You just need to close the ribbons side by side .

The sleeves are very long , as the length of the jacket , which is a characteristic from the Haoris made early 20th century.

The lining is in a bright thin pink silk , a batik with white and purple pattern.

The additional panels of fabrics are hand-sewn on the Haori.

Colors and Light may vary depending your screen.
Sometimes marking , irregularities or imperfect embroideries / colors , condition maybe apparent .
This should not be considered as imperfection and are the characteristic of vintage materials and craft method of dyeing.
It can happen , on the Haori , to have a little smell of mothballs when you open the parcel, or when you iron it with steam, but it will disappear when aired.
