I love this look.

It combines a couple of classic, simple (albeit with a slight twist!) statement menswear pieces to create a traditional, mens looks.

Obviously the elephant in the room, which in this case is more of a red Chinese dragon, is the back of the denim jacket. I've been searching far and wide for a vintage souvenir, satin jacket - but they are either extremely difficult to come across or extremely large.

However... when I went home in Christmas I saw a sister of mine rocking one of my mum's kimonos - with... you guessed it... this dragon on the back... needless to say I claimed the kimono and a couple of chop chops later and voila!

The finishing needs a lot (of safety pins!) but by and large I love the end-ish product.

As always I am dying to hear what you think!

Have a lovely day!
