When most people think of Harajuku style, I feel like they think: out-of-control bubblegum pink, pigtails, gothic Lolitas, Gwen Stefani bullshit… well it’s not all so over the top these days. Some Tokyo girls are rockin’ pretty legit punk rock outfits. Granted, it’s still in that Harajuku tradition, which ultimately is a little too, I don’t know, contrived and derivative for me to TRULY consider it punk rock. But I def consider it stylish, unique, and beautiful.
Tomorrow I’ll post a podcast for my all-Japanese femme punk radio show I did on Saturday!
