Elegant barely off the shoulder blouse with billowy sleeves crafted with one of a kind vintage kimono silks from the 40s to the 70s. Features buttons at front and a fitted upper torso. Pleats at lower torso allow for a flared bottom. Mindfully crafted in New York. 

KARABANA DIAMOND — Burnt orange silk with woven diamond pattern. Diamond motifs typically represent pine tree bark. The pine tree is associated with longevity and the wisdom gleaned in old age. The karabana flower motif is an imaginary flower thought to come from China.
FUYO BRUSHSTROKE — Pale peach-beige base with ochre hand-painted hibuscus motif. Fuyo or hibiscus mutibilis, is known as the "confederate rose" in Japan and represents gentleness.
TANZAKU CHARIOT — Soft pink base with scattered scroll motifs that feature flowers and streams. Tanzaku are traditional playing cards, where each card displays a flower. With each flower,, there is an associated symbolism. This pattern shows cherry blossoms (renewal and transience), irises (protection), and chrysanthemums (beauty and longevity). Chariots represent royalty and divinity.
BURGUNDY HANABISHI — Rich, deep-red satin silk with a ribbed weave and a floral crest motif, occasionally highlighted in red-orange. Hanabishi, or fireworks, literally translates to fire fower, and symbolizes ephemeral beauty.

Measure Yourself

We've provided measurements for each style so that you don't have to do much guessing when it comes to the clothing's fit. Now all you need is a measuring tape (or a piece of string which you can measure with a ruler).

Chest
Measure around your chest (but under the armpits!)
Chest Width
Measure the width of your chest from armpit to armpit.
Waist
Measure around the smallest part of your waistline with one finger space between your body and the measuring tape.
Hips
Stand with your heels together and measure around the fullest part of your hips. Keep the tape parallel with the floor.
Length
Stand with your heels together, keeping tape straight and perpendicular to the floor. Measure from the high point of your shoulders down the length of your back.
Inseam
Find a pair of pants that fit you well and measure from the crotch seam to the opening at the bottom of the pant leg. Round the number to the nearest 1/2" to get your inseam length.
Sleeve Length
The length of the sleeve from the shoulder seam to the cuff.
Cuff Width
The flat width of the cuff.
