Here are two stylish and cute Japanese artists and models who we snapped in Harajuku. On the left is Ring Kato. He told us he is a “creator and visual artist” as well as a model featured in CHOKiCHOKi and other fashion magazines. On the right is the one-and-only Kurebayashi, who we’ve been photographing for several years and is now a popular Kera Magazine model.
Kurebayashi, a painter as well as a model, is wearing a fuzzy pink hoodie with cute rabbit-ear pockets from Fat Cat over a blue knit top with Gola, a pink plaid Japanese school uniform skirt from Rose Fan Fan, cute white socks with a colorful print, and heart-print pink platform high-top sneakers from Swimmer. Her accessories – many of which came from 6%DOKIDOKI in Harajuku – include a cat-head (or wolf?) hat, star and bow hair clips, a large jewel-incrusted bow, a cute sparkling character necklace, and a fun backpack from W<. Kurebayashi told us her favorite brand is 6%DOKIDOKI and her favorite band is Sex Android. If you’d like to know more about Kurebayashi’s fashion or art, please check out her blog.
Ring Kato is wearing a red resale toggle coat over an umbrella-print shirt, wide leg Merci Beaucoup pants, green-and-purple polka dot socks, and leather Full Life shoes. His accessories include glasses, a school uniform-esque scarf, and a remake (hand-modified) paint splattered backpack. Ring’s favorite brand is Frapbois and his favorite musician is Cornelius. If you’d like to see more pictures of Ring, you can take a look at his blog.
