(From Rocket News 24) Love samurai-inspired fashion but hate the cold? Then you might want to add these warm Japanese-style half coats to your wardrobe this winter.
The coats seen here might not be as gaudily eye-catching, but their elegant, downplayed style makes them a less ostentatious choice for citizens of the 21st century.
When the weather gets chilly, there’s a short coat called a haori that’s worn over a kimono. While they’ve been around for centuries, Japanese fashion brand Trove has just released two new haori that make use of modern materials that provide a level of warmth and comfort Japan’s feudal warriors could only have imagined.
Trove is currently taking orders for the wool and ventile haori, which are identically priced at 29,700 yen (US$248), through its online shop here.
