Overview

Japanese Street Style is the first book to showcase innovative and cutting-edge fashions from Tokyo, one of the strongest and fastest-growing style capitals in the world. Tapping into Japan’s rich culture, its fashion scene is an exciting blend of traditional dress and innovative modernity. The book features stunning one-of-a-kind photographs of all the major fashion tribes, from Gothic Lolita and Harajuku to Dolly Kei, Ganguro, and Kigurumi to the popularity of the furry tail.

Inspiring and thought-provoking, Japanese Street Style provides an unprecedented look at an enormously influential current trend in the fashion world— Galliano, Dior, Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith, and Alexander McQueen have all looked to Tokyo for inspiration from its rich visual culture, fine textiles, and craftsmanship techniques. This first-look guide to contemporary Japanese fashion is a must-read for anyone interested in fashion, trends, and culture.
