1930s Labeled Michiyuki Kimono Overcoat

This is a Michiyukie, whoch was worn over a kimono for warmth and protection of the kimono underneath. Michi means "street" and "yuki" refers to "going outside". It is a stunning and early piece made of a silk that has a raised leaf design woven directly into it! The color is an amazing pale terracotta shade. The inside is lined in that perfect 1930s lingerie weight pale lemon colored silk! It snaps to close with hidden snaps so that it creates a low, square neckline and I love the extra bit of pleat detail at the front. It also has its "secret pocket" beneath the front panel on the right. You can completely close it so that you are able to wear it as a dress or fully closed light evening coat. You can leave it loose or belt it. This one is extra special as it has its original store tag from Takashimaya, Osaka that was founded in 1829! It may be earlier then the 30s. Excellent condition 

Fully lined in a pale lemon silk and has hidden snaps to close as well as ties inside. It is in excellent shape on the exterior. The interior shows minor foxing and just the very beginning of shattering near the neckline bit is strong and stable now. I do not feel like these distract. Please do remember these were worn and loved so have a natural patina and should not be expected to be perfect! It is after all almost 100 years old!
