It’s no secret that Japanese people seem to have a thing about London, with many a style tribe in Japan constantly trying to emulate and interpret their idea of ‘British’ style be it the 1970’s anarchic punk scene or the 80’s Culture Club era through their outfits. However, have Londoners reciprocated and paid homage to the Japanese Harajuku girls who pile it on with colourful accessories and generally take a fearless, rainbow attitude towards fashion? I can assure you it’s a rare occurence.
But check out these pics from the Kokon To Zai 10 year anniversary party from the new issue of Street magazine! Anything kitsch and colourful – these people were wearing it. Then again, at a party hosted by a boutique that stocks labels like Marjan Pejoski, Horace and it’s own brand; the loud and proud KTZ, I suppose I couldn’t have expected any less.
