STYLE ARENA – A great resource for Japanese street fashion shots, covering Harajuku, Shibuya, Omotesando, Daikanyama, Ginza, and maybe a few other painfully hip districts. The above link is for the Harajuku page.
When I was in Japan, my lack of personal style and fashion sense became painfully apparent. Nobody just goes out in Tokyo. Everyone is accessorized, layerized, their hair has been done, stuff has been pierced and painted and encrusted with crystals, things hang from every catch on their bags, cellphones, zippers. And every combination looks jarring to the unaccustomed eye at first sight. But I suppose that’s what fashion is. Ridiculous as it may be (and sound coming from me, after greater heads have long decided), I think Japanese street fashion is onto something.
