A sukajan or 'souvenir jacket' takes its name from Post WWII Japan, when American soldiers would commission ornate embroideries on their jackets to commemorate their time overseas. In this unique fusion of cultures, Japanese dragons can intertwine with American eagles amongst cherry blossoms and military iconography. These oriental souvenirs have captivated designers and inspired collections from Gucci and Louis Vuitton.
This stunning vintage sukajan is fully embroidered with oriental birds of paradise, tropical flowers and butterflies with patterned wings. This jacket is padded and silky to touch with a bright red quilted lining. Despite its age this sukajan is in perfect condition - contact us for more details.
