One of my favorite trends for Spring and Summer is the satin souvenir jacket (aka sukajan jacket). They were all over the runways last season. Not to mention everyone in Hollywood has been seen wearing one. Most of the designer jackets are ridiculously priced, but fast-fashion has gotten in on the trend. Now’s our chance to finally get in on the action without spending an arm and a leg.
Souvenir jackets were literally souvenirs after World War II. Soldiers would buy them to memorialize their time over-seas which is where the eastern and western symbols like dragons and tigers come from.
