A one of a kind, vintage, Japanese kimono silk, trench coat. This gorgeous fabric has a bold, abstracted flower and vines design. Outlined in black, the colorful red and white flower shapes are scattered over a silvery grey. The flowers are highlighted with bits of yellow and green. It is 'meisen' silk, a kind of ikat. The fabric is loosely woven, printed with the design, then unwoven and finally rewoven so that the images have a blurred edge. There are angled pockets on the front. It can be worn with or without its matching belt. Fully lined with silk charmeuse. 4 vintage glass buttons line the front.
Garment measures 43 inches bust, 46 inches hips, length at center back 31 inches. Size small. [Approximate industry size 12.]
All pieces are hand made one at a time in my Portland, Oregon studio. Fabrics are vintage Japanese silks. The very special fabric used in this trench coat was woven, stenciled and painted by Japanese artisans and finally sewn into a kimono. I removed the hand stitching, washed and prepared the fabric and sewed it into my trench coat design.
