Grimoire Heri in Beautiful Dolly Kei Fashion w/ Corset & Crucifix

This is Heri, the well-known shop girl from the Shibuya vintage shop Grimoire. You may remember Heri from our report – with amazing pictures – on the recent Grimoire 3rd Anniversary Party.

Heri’s beautiful outfit consists exclusively of items that came from the main Grimoire shop in Shibuya. Some of the featured items include a vintage corset with tassels over a flower-print dress, a vintage hat, a playing card earring, a large wooden crucifix necklace and a theatrical mask necklace, several vintage pins, a gorgeous vintage-style bracelet, a vintage ring, knit leggings (or socks), and vintage black heels. There are many more details you can see by looking at the high resolution pictures. Heri told us that her favorite fashion brand is Grimoire (of course) and she enjoys listening to Irish music.

These street snaps of Heri were shot back in 2010, but they were on hold for a magazine project. Since the magazine didn’t need some of the photos, we’re publishing the remaining pictures here on The fact that the photos are from last year gives us a chance to notice some details where Grimoire (and Dolly Kei in general) was ahead of fashion trends in Tokyo. This spring and summer, we are seeing wooden cross necklaces and vintage pins everywhere, but Heri was wearing them last year. Dolly Kei has been incredibly influentially on Tokyo street fashion in the last few years considering how few people are actually heavily involved in the scene, and considering that all of the major Dolly Kei shops are tiny.
