Kimonos made from African fabrics


Serge Mouange ("a Cameroon-born, Paris-raised, Tokyo-based" Nissan car designer) has launched Wafrica, a couture brand that makes Japanese kimonos out of traditional African fabrics. They're just beautiful, and he's promised more Japan/African mashup designs in future (let's hope he launches them with a kinder website than the current unlinkable, music-in-background, browser-crashing Flashstrosity that's currently there).
