Fruits & Boots



After pretty much years of waiting my New Look and Amazon packages were waiting for me when I got back from school today, hurrah!! I've been meaning to get some ankle boots for ages, and I love these ones, they sort of look piratey with the buckles don't you think? My Amazon package was two books, Fruits and Fresh Fruits by Shoichi Aoki. Fruits is a fashion magazine in Japan which pretty much exclusively is just full page pictures of street style from mainly Harajuku but also Tokyo in general. The two books I got are books of photos from the mag, and its so much fun to look through them! Its also interesting reading the small interview the photographer gives each person at the bottom of things, so you can see where the person got each part of their outfit from, current obssesion, point of fashion, ages and names etc.
The guy on the left hand pages in the part of his interview where it asks what his 'current obssesion' is he says sex...good lord!! The girl on the right hand pages' dress is so pretty, funnily enough there really isn't that much Lolita style in both volumes.

This girl above states her point of fashion and current obsession as Britain - yay!

I love her punk style, reminds me of the anime Nana. Some of her accessories are Vivienne Westwood, which is for some reason REALLY popular in Japan. On almost every page of the Fruits books someone has a Westwood bag or shoes.

She looks just like snow white!

If only the streets in England were this colourful and exciting!

I have the first Fruits and it's always such fun to look through them. I've bought a copy of Fruits magazine before too and the books are definitely worth buying for the sheer amount of photos.

Ahh I adore Japan!

i wish that the streets of england were nearly as nice as the streets of japan seem to be! you can't walk outside here wearing anything remotely different without getting iggled at! well, you can, but only in the weirder, more fashion-forward parts of town.
