BlackMeans Punk-inspired Street Fashion in Harajuku

This is Kakegawa, a 22-year-old Japanese guy we met on the street in Harajuku. Kakegawa’s look is inspired by 1970s and early-1980s hardcore punk.

Kakegawa’s outfit features several pieces from the Japanese fashion brand BlackMeans. BlackMeans are known for their punk-inspired handmade-in-Japan leather jackets. You can see a great example of the brand’s aesthetic in Kakegawa’s BlackMeans leather vest. His zippered leather motorcycle pants are also from BlackMeans. Kakegawa’s accessories include a felt hat, several silver rings, BlackMeans spiked boots, a BlackMeans Lighter Holder, a BlackMeans leather pouch, and sunglasses on a chain around his neck.

Kakegawa told us that his favorite type of music is hardcore punk and that his favorite fashion brand is… BlackMeans!
