GRAMM COLLECTION FROM S-INC, H.NAOTO. ROCOCO GOTH RETRO COUTURE, FADED ASYMMETRICAL LACE PASTEL GARMENTS AT MARUIONE, ロリータ・ファッション.
The MaruiOne summer sale is still on. Today, I got a short Marble jacket with ridiculous poofy sleeves, straight out of Interview with the Vampire. Marked down from $130 to $100 – not bad!
I’m intrigued by Gramm, a new brand from S-inc (the company that produces h.NAOTO) found on the sixth floor. It reminds me of a passage from Graham Greene’s Ministry of Fear… the protagonist visits a church fair, and there are trunks of antique clothing for sale – faded, moth-eaten and lace-laden garments from the 1800s.
Gramm reproduces the “grandma’s attic” look with a nod to Japanese Lolita. I love the metal buttons, the deconstructed and trailing pieces…
This pink and white high-waisted Gramm skirt is currently 50% off at Marui! (I think it retails for around $130.) You can see more of this new brand on the S-inc website.
I’ve been picking up kawaii knick-knacks… ridiculous Swimmer pens with giant cute heads, Doraemon band-aids, nail stick-on art. San-X’s brown bear Rilakkuma is one of my favorite characters… how about you? (You can find Rilakkuma goodies like the ones above on J-List.)
