Sakuran and Kanji are two Japanese high school students from different parts of Japan who share an interest in one-of-a-kind handmade and remake street fashion. Each of their personal styles is unique and quite extreme – even on the streets of Harajuku – so we felt very lucky to get a shot of both of them together last. Living in different prefectures, it was the first time the two young designers had met in person.
Sakuran – a 17-year-old high school student from Hokkaido with a red shaved hairstyle – is wearing a train themed look with a remade Kappa top featuring a model train collar, layered train artwork skirts, arm warmers, gloved hands, Demonia platform boots, and a Lucky Daikichi bag. Her favorite shops include Dog Harajuku and Radd Lounge and she enjoys the music of 808 State and Yoshinori Sunahara of Denki Groove. Follow Sakuran on Instagram or Twitter for more of her handmade fashion.
Kanji – a 17-year-old high school student from near Tokyo in a flower headdress – is also wearing a mostly handmade and remake look along with items from John Lawrence Sullivan, Issey Miyake, and sparkling gold Dolls Kill boots. His favorite brands include Dolls Kill, Iris Van Herpen, and Noritaka Tatehana. He enjoys the music of HY, Ms.Ooja, and Bump of Chicken. Follow Kanji on Instagram and Twitter for more of his avant-garde Japanese street fashion.
