Fashion: photographer Shoichi Aoki’s book Fruits, Fresh Fruits, from the streets of Harajuku in Tokyo, point the way to an extraordinarily imaginative and invariably stunning glut of mongrel fashion heists. All shades of aesthetic are raided, with exquisite, scrupulous attention to detail. Punk is a favourite, as is, appropriately, Vivienne Westwood, alongside Milk and Jean-Paul Gaultier, and the occasional Comme des Garcons.
Although a little outrageous and outlandish, I can only imagine the amount of time it took them to get ready, with the layers of clothing and attention to detail. Perhaps in relation to their favourite manga character?
