MILK SWEET LOLITA STORE IN HARAJUKU, VISUAL KEI & DARKWAVE SONG THE OF DAY.

Milk gothic and sweet lolita shopping, buying lolita mens clothes, kodona or ouji dandy fashion, in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan.

Got Milk? Meiji Doori (the busy Harajuku street) certainly does. The Japanese fashion brand originated in the 1970s and is viewed as the precursor to Lolita style. Today, it continues to deliver sweet, retro-style collections. Milk Boy spikes it up with modern graphics…

Cute Milk young women's fashion store in Tokyo, Japan. Red heart shaped purses, vintage style retro children's clothing.

…while the girl’s store next door stays Sweet and Classic, in the vein of Jane Marple and Emily Temple Cute. Can’t you imagine the French character Madeline totting around a red, heart-shaped purse to match her kind heart?

On a different note… many of you have asked for music recommendations, especially in my favorite genres: Visual Kei (J-rock), EBM (electronic body music), Gothic, and darkwave. I discovered some gems while at Tokyo nightclubs, and I’m excited to share them with you. And so… drumroll please… I’m debuting a new feature called “Song of the Day!”

Henceforth, at the end of each blog post, I’ll include a link to a YouTube video along with the artist and track name. Let me know what you think in the comments, and please leave your own song recommendations. I hope you enjoy this new feature.

Song of the Day #1: Apoptygma Berzerk – Unicorn (duet version)

    this isnt remotely jrock, but have you heard The Horrors? theyre a British sixties-inspired goth rock outfit, they have the biggest hair and pointiest chelsea boots in the west! (also a song called 'Draw Japan', and a rather amazing and gruesome video for their song 'Sheena is a Parasite', sooo much fun! )

  1. […] You can’t make this up, folks: Innocent World is two floors above a store called A-Titty! Once you reach Harajuku station, walk down Takeshita Doori, turn right onto Meiji Doori, and keep going; it’s on the right side near Milk (which you may remember from my store photos). […]
