With their ever-evolving improvisations, Tokyo's youthful fashion tribes consistently outflank their western runway imitators. Manhattan-based photographer Thomas Card made it his mission to capture these young mavericks in their acts of being themselves in the most eccentric ways. His photos of frilly, short-skirted, high-stocking party babies display their quirky, playful innocence; even down to the colorful strawberries painted on one cheek. As cultural observer Buzz Spector notes in an accompanying essay, this trickle-up style-setting is not going unnoticed among Asian, European, and American fashion designers. Tokyo Adorned displays why: Japanese street fashion makes you see anew. Editor's recommendation.
