Made from cotton, the Yukata is an airy and light traditional summer kimono. The epitome of summer fashion, they feature a variety of signature Japanese colours and patterns so every woman and girl can express their own individuality and are an iconic piece of summer fashion that every Japanista should own.

This season, UNIQLO has reinvented the traditional garment for modern times, retaining the authentic weaves to provide ladies with the quintessential feel and comfort of traditional Yukata while adding a trendy touch.
