Dahlia Ruffled Kimono
The dahlia ruffled kimono jacket is modelled on a wardrobe staple: the cropped denim jacket. It is crafted from panels of vintage kimono linings and industry deadstock tulle for an authentic, love-worn finish.
Layer the dahlia jacket over the ikat jumpsuit or a T-shirt and jeans for more casual occasions.
About the kimonos:
This jacket is a contemporary nod to the 'fashionistas' of a time gone by. During the Asuka and Heian periods, colours indicated the wearer's wealth and social rank. Hierarchy was displayed and determined by specific colours. The most difficult colour to produce was a deep purple - reserved for royalty and strictly prohibited for wear by anyone else. To avoid fines, the bold and fashion-conscious would line their garments with forbidden colours and patterns.
