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.


Gramm collection, Gothic Lolita dresses, deconstructed faded asymmetrical lace pastel clothing, designer garments from Japan, Rococo skirts, avantgarde clothes from Tokyo, MaruiOne shopping complex or department store.

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.

ロリータ・ファッション Gramm collection, Gothic Lolita dresses, pearl buttons and long lace tops, deconstructed faded asymmetrical lace pastel clothing, designer garments from Japan, Rococo skirts, avantgarde clothes from Tokyo, MaruiOne shopping complex or department store.

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.

Cute Rilakkuma character goods from Japan, San-X bear and yellow chick or duck, kawaii stationery, bento boxes, stuffed teddy bear toys from Tokyo

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.)

  • The old lacey garments remind me of a skirt i just bought from flutterbydaisy. I love the look of the button up top.

    I love tare panda and sugar bunnies, but I've got way too many plush toys for a gal my age! My friends have commented – “It's scary!” haha

    I love love love Gramm! It suits my aesthetic to a Z! There is a brand quite similar, and I believe they're either from the US or Europe (can't remember), they are called Gibbous. They're actually on myspace, I think fans of Gramm would really love them!

    Also, you mentioned nail art and on the back of a magazine I saw nail pens by Sally Hansen to be used to create designs easily. I'm really interested in trying them out!

  • I really like the look of Gramm (the whole attic-y thing), but I don't think it's something I would personally wear.
    Rilakkuma is one of my favorites too! I also like NyanNyanNyanko.

    • Oooh, thanks – I’ll have to look up Gibbous!

      I saw those exact same nail pens hahah. In fact, I sent the company an email about it but they haven’t replied. Boo to big company form letters.

    • I think that might have been Gramm’s problem… it looks amazing but I don’t think it’s selling too well. Almost all the pieces are half off at the Marui sale.
