This super-stylish guy with blonde hair and a black cap is Choi, an 18-year-old student from Seoul, South Korea, who is studying in Japan. His outfit from Candy Shibuya includes a vintage jacket over vertically-striped pants (or leggings). His blue quilted bag is also from Candy. He’s decorated the bag with small toys, including Ernie from Sesame Street, and a small doll covered in what looks like plastic eyes.
Choi’s two-tone platform sneakers are from Banal Chic Bizarre. His accessories include a Marc Jacobs necklace, headphones, and a unique vintage ring that looks like a gift bow. There are buttons on his hat that look like they could be Christopher Nemeth designs, but he didn’t mention those so we can’t be sure. He told us his favorite fashion venues are Candy and Joyrich. Choi’s favorite music is by Take That and Capsule.

Note: These street snaps were taken before the big earthquake that hit Japan on March 11, 2011. Things are slowly getting back to normal in Harajuku, so we’re working on getting caught up on our street snap postings. Please consider supporting the earthquake relief efforts through one of these organizations.
