This is Minami, a 20-year-old Japanese college student we met in Harajuku. Her red short-bangs hairstyle (a la Bettie Page) gives her an edgy look that caught our eye right away.
Minami’s outfit – which features several resale items – includes a long-but-light tartan coat (with various vintage patches) over a Kiss band t-shirt, high-waisted denim shorts, striped over-the-knee socks with a Japanese flag at the top of each, and shiny red creepers from RNA. Her bag is the famous cherries page from Nadia. Minami told us that her favorite shops/brands are Nadia, RNA, and Candy Stripper.
[Quick observation about extremely specific trends: one of the patches on Minami’s coat says “Halloween 1984”. We’re seeing a lot of vintage pins/buttons lately on the streets of Tokyo. For some reason, buttons/pins related to horror seem especially popular right now. Not sure why.]
