CUTE GHOSTS & JAPANESE MENS PUNK CLOTHING. WORLD WIDE LOVE, MALKO MALKA, SUPER LOVERS, PEACE NOW, ALGONQUINS.
What’s the epitome of spooky-cute? The Peace Now ghost guy. The Goth-punk brand mascot smiles from backpacks and purses.
Read on for more male and unisex clothing in the basement of Laforet (Harajuku department store)…
Peace Now’s jackets have very nice tailoring. I like how the prints and coordinates are not too fussy.
World Wide Love also has a cute ghost, with a bat-like mouth. The happy face bags are iconic for the brand.
The menswear is decorated with stars with smiley faces. Only in Japan.
I find these punky-street coordinates more intriguing than Lolita at the moment… (Remember my article about losing interest that got some heat?)
Malko Malka is another streetwear brand with a variety of patterns and styles.
The shopgirl’s hair matches the neon colors of Super Lovers.
The heart logo and panda mascot are instantly recognizable.
The graffiti splashes stand out.
Super Lovers isn’t really my style, but I’d wear these dresses.
The Algonquins color scheme, on the other hand, fits me to a T.
Woo, I’ve updated my giant Tokyo shopping guide, which has maps and photos from the best clothing and accessory stores in Harajuku, Ikebukuro and Shinjuku! Check out my Osaka shopping maps and reports as well.
