The kimono cardigan is a 2-way jacket that incorporates many Rurouni Kenshin references. On one side, you get a deep indigo cardigan that corresponds to the black kimono that Kenshin wore during his time as an assassin.

You’d also find Kenshin’s iconic facial scar plastered embroidered on the chest and printed on the right shoulder area of the deep indigo and maroon sides respectively.

There are easter eggs found in the small woven labels along the sleeves too. On the indigo side, you have a cherry blossom design that symbolises the renewal of Kenshin’s identity as he sheds his dark past. Meanwhile, the label on the maroon side depicts 2 crossed katana, alluding to the life-changing battle that put Kenshin on the path of redemption.
