Looking East for Inspiration

One of my most beloved movies is “Memoirs of a Geisha” which I watched again yesterday, and enjoying a rainy day at home today, I dug out “The Last Samurai” to end off my little eastern festival.

I recently bought a kimono inspired jacket which was based on a longer version in the Gucci SP16 line.  Off the runway it is worn over casual basics.

Gucci has taken it one step further for SP17 with an even more authentic look, but most of us can wear a kimono over anything already in our closet for a dressy, Boho or sexy look.

  

The Satin Bomber jacket, a style worth investing in as it is still trending through 2017, is another way to add a touch of the East to your outfit.  There are also plain versions out there to suit any budget.
