Camilla Welton kimonoat: Now with added semaphore flags

Camilla Welton kimonoatThis coat is not particularly ugly so long as you keep your arms down.  But really, how much of every day do you spend with your arms glued to your sides?  Raise your arms and oh!  People will be trying to decipher what you are saying in semaphore code.  What’s that?  SOS?  You’re being attacked by your coat sleeves?

The coat is made to order so the price tag is of £490 is not so bad when you factor that in.

What do you think though?  Do you want to walk around looking as though you have flags attached to your arms?  If you do, and you have a spare £490 lying around, you can buy this coat at Catwalk Genius.

    well, this coat definitely inspired by kimono/yukata (it is written or its name, anyway) Yes, i agree that it looks like flags waving under the arms, but… it is a genuine signature of kimono/yukata. I love japan style, I think this coat looks nice and edgy, i would wear it for certain occasion… It will look good with boot and Gothic eye make up 🙂

    I’d go for it. I’m a total Japan-o-phile, so the kosode sleeves really make it pop for me.
