Repurposed Sweater & Art Bag in Harajuku

This cute Japanese girl with purple-tipped hair is Mitsukon, a 20-year-old student. She has a real knack for repurposing clothing, as seen in her pants which are actually a sweater that she bought used. She’s also wearing a resale merci beaucoup shirt that she bought used at OTOE and a white cardigan decorated with what look like red and blue shoe laces. She borrowed her shoes, which are cotton slippers, and she’s carrying a handmade bag with a red ink drawing.

In answer to our questions about preferences, Mitsukon told us she likes used, resale and vintage clothing stores and enjoys the music of Special Others. You can find out more if you read Japanese on her blog.
