1980s Navy and White Linen Striped Asahi Sake Kimono Jacket, 46in Bust
A fabulous jacket to wear as a cover up in warmer weather, this promotional kimono style jacket from the late 1980s early 1990s is made from a stiff linen blend fabric. The stripes are eye catching and give a slight nautical vibe, with the printed Japanese script in white being a bold statement against the deep navy. As it is more modern, there are pockets added, which lets face it, every girl needs, which would make this a great layer to wear with jeans, over dresses or with loose flowing trousers.
