    The individuals in this book are certainly not afraid to be different I wish the U.S was like this, in embracing such types of personalities.

    I used to see this book all the time at the nearby music store, and one day I received it as a gift I m not going to suggest that everyone should dress like the people in this book, but I will say that I loved how they were able to put together something different and interesting, completely unlike what I ve seen here in the U.S Even the most outrageous outfits I ve seen at clubs in LA can t hold a candle to what s in this book Very creative stuff here.

    about a Japanese magazine that documented the late 1990 s fashion revolution, which highlighted the youth changing everything from their hair color to the kimono Hoko ten, pedestrian only areas of the city, were closed in 1999 Fun to remember raver culture

    An entire book of photos of teens and young adults dressed in authentic Japanese street fashion I laughed, I gasped, I frowned quizzically and I admired You must see to believe.

    This is a collection of street snaps from the heydays of Harajuku fashion Preserved, according to the foreword, not only to show off the creativity that was out in the streets back in the days but also as a reminder to fashion forward youth not to forget this was a thing that happened and a rallying cry not to succumb to casual fashion that s popular nowadays Sorry Shoichi Aoki I also have the Gothic Lolita version of this and tbh both of them are old so I m not sure how to really put it So let s do that as bluntly as possible In bullets FRUiTS aged better than GL I hate saying that because Capitalism and consumer culture is what happened to Gothic Lolita fashion and the things people think are ita now are the cheap or handmade items that helped establish the subculture in the first place so thanks a lot for that Anyway, there s a lot of ita or inelegant, ugly fashion in the Gothic Lolita book because the fashion has moved on to pricey branded items that get sold out the first day On the other hand, street fashion in general not counting the Lolita and hime branches chugs along merrily without really looking at trends, so the fashion in FRUiTS is actually still very fresh and fashionable There s also quite a number of DIY and thrifting happening, with people customising their clothing again not something you see that much in the GL or hime side to make them one of a kind items, and I feel there s so much street cred there Why did we become so enad with brand names I got a book that was published recently , Tokyo Street Style and that features casual fashion that costs you an arm and a leg, with select shops that tend to favour minimalism And again, sorry Shoichi Aoki DAll that said, I m not the biggest fan of the book s coloured text on busy backgrounds Yes, the photos are important than the text, but can t you do it in white font at least There are a couple descriptions I just couldn t read at all.
