Womens Wear Daily found themselves on the streets of Toykyo recently and discovered a whole slew of young ladies who eschew the Harajuku style. The ubiquitous Harajuku way of dressing embraces manga, anime, surreal fantasy and hyperactive colour palettes. The city is synonymous with Power Puff and Hello Kitty street style, and girls dressed up as boys dressed up as girls dressed up as superhero characters. Turns out though, that loads of ladies just fancy a bit of pure, unadulterated (and unadorned) fashion. In the traditional sense. They go casual during the day and throw on a bit of fancy at night. They follow trends and take inspiration from the runways. The Sartorialist also managed to find some candidates that had a more ‘conservative’ approach to fashion.
