This modern take on a kimono jacket brings back the elegance of days gone by. Elevated with Japanese lace around the front, hem and three-quarter sleeves, this kimono is stylish and deceptively simple. While it’s probably a bit flashy for Miss Marple herself, it is still tasteful and genteel enough to to happily live in her knitting basket.
