Actress Emi Takei, 17, center, poses with models during an event by Japan's No. 1 retailer, AEON, to launch its 2011 summer yukata collection, in Tokyo on Wednesday. The new collection, "Yukata Magic," emphasizes elegance and comfort, including six varieties of a new stretch material, the retailer's latest innovation. During the event, Takei said that wearing yukata makes her proud to be Japanese, and that one day she would like to go on a "yukata date" with a boyfriend who talks a lot and doesn't get tired of listening to her. AEON will also air the campaign's new commercial featuring Takei from Thursday.© Japan Today
