Vintage Mask, Headband & Tatami Setta Sandals

We snapped this cool 16-year-old high school student in Harajuku. Aoki’s outfit has several customized elements, including a vintage mask that he wears around his neck. He’s also wearing a red tank top with a Disney graphic and blue athletic shorts. A knotted rope wraps around his body.

On Aoki’s feet are traditional Japanese tatami setta sandals. His headband also has a traditional Japanese look, but his red hair and glasses are definitely modern. His backpack is from The North Face.

  1. that mask is terrifying, but anyone who can wear rope as an accessory and make it look cool gets my respect. A+

  2. I find the whole look interesting,I like the mask and the rope.Has my respect too.

  3. I don’t think I would have ever thunk to have worn rope X3 it’s so odd, but he does look kinda pretty cool!!

  4. Lol I love this I love how creepy the mask is and how he made a rope a very nice accessory he is the best

  5. He’s great! I love that some Japanese Harajuku kids are taking a twist on traditional Japanese culture into what they wear. I saw the most amazing couple in Harajuku with simiar style, and wanted to take their picture but then someone who knew me came up to me and I missed my chance! Hoped they’d be on a street snap web site but I guess nobody else caught them. I was shocked!

    I love that this guy took a not so vintage Disney shirt yet made it cool. I love how the Japanese can take not so cool or wearable items and make them interesting..

  6. 16 yo? cool! modern look + traditional elements… very nice idea! I like it ^^

  7. I love how he tied rope around himself, like fuck that shit, ima wear this rope.
