Kansai Yamamoto Vintage AW1981 Brown Corduroy Knit Embroidered Hooded Jacket
Phenomenal, museum-worthy vintage Kansai Yamamoto jacket from Fall/Winter 1981, shown here documented on the runway, and as part of The Met's collection in an alternative color. Part bomber-part varsity jacket, this piece features a chocolate brown corduroy body, with creamy beige faux-leather sleeves. Mesmerizing embroidery at the left front chest and backside, featuring a Foo Dog in vivid, vibrant colors , and a large scale Kansai signature in black tinsel and golden thread. Puffy arms lined in black quilted nylon. Puffy body fully lined in intricate brown/beige knit. Unbelievable, convertible collar that snaps at the neck to stand, unsnaps to create sailor style collar, and also zips up to become a full hood, complete with drawstrings. Padded Shoulder. Ribbed cuff and waist/hip band. Shown on the women's collection runway, but absolutely suitable for any gender.
