Meet 21-year-old Japanese college student Satoko. Her gothic-meets-traditional look caught our attention when we spotted her on the street in Harajuku.

Satoko’s outfit features a yukata from Japanese fashion giant Uniqlo, a handmade strawberry-print obi, and gothic platform shoes. Her accessories include a black lace hair bow, a purse from h.Naoto, a red wooden cross necklace from tutuHA, a choker with a chain attached, and several plush charms (a pink pandatone Gloomy Bear, Pickles The Frog, and Kuro from Sentimental Circus).

Satoko told us that her favorite fashion brand is the Harajuku-favorite Black Peace Now. Her favorite music is by the Japanese metal band Onmyo-Za.
