When an all-American denim is combined with traditional Japanese yukata summer kimono fashion, the result is a stylish cross-cultural fusion. This is the product of a partnership between American jean company Lee and Japanese restaurant chain Tsukada Nojo.

The creations for men and women include the Denim Mini Yukata and Denim Samue, which modernize the Japanese outfits with just a simple swap in materials. Although the styles can be paired with a colorful obi sash, since the ensembles are made entirely from denim, they work just as well with an accompanying belt.

Following the style put forth from this line of kimono fashion, it's easy to imagine that cultural outfits from other countries could be reworked in a similar way.
