Japanese Girl’s Wedge Espadrilles, Maxi Dress, Parasol & Straw Bag
This is Honami, a 17-year-old Japanese high school student. She was drinking a carton of Dole fruit juice in Harajuku when we stopped her for photos.
Honami is wearing a colorful outfit that features a lavender maxi-dress from The Virgin Mary (a shop popular with Dolly Kei girls) along with wedge espadrilles with flowers on them from Tarock. Her accessories include ribbon bows in her blonde hair, a parasol (Tokyo’s summer sun can be brutal), strawberry earrings, and a handmade patchwork-crochet-random-materials-and-hanging-pompoms collar from indie Japanese fashion brand mxe. She’s also carrying two bags – a heart-shaped straw basket from The Virgin Mary and a brown shoulder bag from Theatre Products.
When we asked her about her favorite shops/brand, Honami told us that she really likes both The Virgin Mary and Grimoire.

Note: This update is from a series of street snaps that were taken last year for a print magazine. The magazine didn’t need all of the photos, so we are running the remaining snaps here on Tokyo Fashion. Some of the styles may be more 2010 than 2011, but they have never been seen before and we didn’t want them to go unpublished.
