The roots of denim lay deep in the highly functional uniforms of industrial workers worldwide. We love when brands reach back into these roots and transform the concept into something modern and fashion-forward. Japanese denim brand Kunna showed us a heavily washed, soft-textured chambray jacket that does exactly this, featuring patch pockets and a relaxed fit. Pair this classic with your current summer looks to transition seamlessly into fall.
