1980's KANSAI YAMAMOTO Tunic Cardigan

$480.00

1980's KANSAI YAMAMOTO Tunic Cardigan

Navy, purple, blue and teal wool knit. Striking patchwork - a combination of felting, rope trim, metallic embroidery and velvet, depicting a figure in a headdress riding a dragon. Felted lettering on both sides and one sleeve that reads "Energie + 1260", "Uncanny", and "06 + 218%". High collar that can be folded down. Longer panel at the back for a tunic-like fit. Button closure up the front. Label reads, "Kansai International".

Mel's Notes: I'm not 100% sure, I believe the image on the back is of Benzaiten (), also sometimes referred to as Benten - a Japanese Buddhist goddess who originated from the Hindu goddess Saraswati. Benzaiten is considered the goddess of everything that flows: water, time, words, speech, eloquence, music and, by extension, knowledge. She is also often depicted riding a water dragon. Interestingly, the dragon on the sweater has two heads, one that snakes over the shoulder onto the front and one on the back. 

Condition: The sweater has about a dozen repaired holes (most 1/3 - 1/2 inch in diameter), but it is otherwise in Excellent Condition - bright and clean with very little pilling. Because of the repairs, it is priced accordingly.

Fits most sizes

56" bust or chest / 28" shoulder / 18.5" sleeve length / 29" front + 33" back overall length
