1980s Kansai Yamamoto "Mystical Energie" Dragon Coat
This coat is pure Kansai magic! It is unisex, looking amazing on a man or woman. The coat is dark gray wool with black leather faux croc accents at the pockets, collar and at down the back of the sleeve from the seam to the elbow. The jacket is also adorned with felt words, like ENERGIE + 84 (perhaps the year) up the right sleeve, +362% on the left-front near the hem, and MYSTICAL .. 302 going down the back left. Oh, and if you didn't notice, the coat has a little embroidery!!! A beautiful dragon with a velvet body holding a pearl, and that art on the back showing two five clawed dragons and a beautiful woman pointing her finger up to the sky. It is breathtaking! The cut of the jacket is so Kansai too. Its a baggy cut bringing to mind the old Japanese style of dress, and there is a wide cut out in the back, like an exaggerated open kick-pleat which brings to mind some of the costumes he has made for David Bowie. The coat has two zippered side patch pockets. There is a quilted white satin lining from the shoulders to the hip, then it is unlined to the hem.
