Old School Ganguro Wearing Alba Rosa in Shibuya
Shooting street fashion is a lot like hunting. You’re always prowling around the city hoping to capture (on your camera only, of course) something rare and amazing. Well, in 2011, there are few things more rare (or amazing) than a real live Ganguro! So, when we were running errands in Shibuya and saw this silver-haired Ganguro crossing the Shibuya 109 intersection with a Center Guy in pink braids, we dropped everything we were doing and went into Hunter Mode.
Luckily for us, this Ganguro Girl and Center Guy both turned out to be really friendly. Not only did they agree to let us snap a few quick photos, but they also stopped and let random school kids and other passersby take pictures as well. In old school Ganguro style, they were both wearing fashion from the famous-in-Shibuya Japanese brand Alba Rosa. Besides Alba Rosa, the girl was also wearing a couple of Ayumi Hamasaki necklaces and sporting several different facial piercings.
