CLOSET CHILD HARAJUKU: BUY GOTHIC & SWEET LOLITA CLOTHING IN TOKYO, DISCOUNT JAPANESE EGL. JEFFREY CAMPBELL SHOES.
Let’s shop in Harajuku with my spooky crew!
One of the area’s best vintage/secondhand stores is Dog (right). Electro-designer fashion heaven. But my favorite store is Closet Child. Let’s take a look inside.
Here, you’ll find used but brand-name Gothic Lolita Punk clothes, at reasonable prices. The first level specializes in Lolita fashion. How about an Alice and the Pirates dress, and Gloomy Bear bag?
There’s a JSK color and style for every Loli.
A plentiful selection of frilly bags, bow hair clips and girly jewelry.
You’ll find all the major Lolita brands here, such as Innocent World, Angelic Pretty, and Baby the Stars Shine Bright. Prices are generally $100-300. Items from the discount rack (pictured) are under $100, but the designs are iffy.
My favorite floor is the one above, dedicated to Goth-rock-punk. I found a Black Peace Now ghost sweater.
Space-disco leggings, leopard print fuzzy coat, a gorgeous Moi-meme-moitie dress.
There’s stuff for boys too, such as aristocratic Atelier Pierrot jackets.
Don’t worry if you’re not into the more extreme styles. There are trendy items to mix and match.
Turnover is fast at Closet Child, so you should visit often and purchase quickly (don’t forget to use the point card). How do you get here? All the details are in my Harajuku shopping map (walk down Takeshita Doori from Harajuku station; it’s on the left side).
For more Gothic Lolita and alternative shopping in Tokyo, refer to my shopping guide.
I leave you with these Rococo-glorious Jeffrey Campbell shoes. Face mask. Win.
PS: Thanks to Rainbow Natalia and Gulnara for the cute fanart! If you have drawings of Seba, Basil and me, send them and I’ll feature them on my blog.
