INNOCENT WORLD HARAJUKU: SWEET LOLITA STORE, KAWAII PRINTS AND SOCKS.


Gothic Lolita and Sweet Loli clothes, Innocent World store in Harajuku, Tokyo Japan. Princess fashion, hime kei girls clothing. Victorian parasols.

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).

The seventh floor opens to a dainty Victorian wonderland piped with classical music. Sweet and Gothic Lolita dresses are displayed with utmost care and delicacy; I almost felt guilty about touching anything. Quite a difference from the racks of rag-tag dresses in the nearby Closet Child – where, funny enough, some of these dresses will end up.

gothic lolita prints, dresses. Innocent World cute Sweet Lolita skirts and clothing from Japan. Cat and bunnies cute fabric prints.

I was struck by the fine craftsmanship of the products. Innocent World uses cute prints in eye-catching ways, such as by concentrating the animals at the bottom of the bell skirt to create visual variety.

Cute children's prints clothing, girl's skirts with bear embroidery. Little girl party princess dresses, costumes from Japan.

Other dresses featured fabric cut-outs, a string of beads over lace, and embroidery. I was tempted by the this gorgeous chess-piece-inspired cardigan. (The parasols and shoes also tugged at me…)

Gothic Lolita knee high socks with ribbon and cherry prints. Designer Japanese socks, cool leggings from Tokyo, Japan. Innocent World EGL Lolita clothing

Like the Happy Socks I modeled, these knee-highs make use of trompe d’oeil: in this case, ballet slippers laced with roses and cherries.

Tomorrow, I’m kicking off a week-long giveaway! Wait until you see the Gothic/Lolita prizes… dum dum dum…

    Those socks are beautiful! I love the dress with the kitten pattern at the bottom of the bell skirt.
    Gah! I wish I could go so badly. I'd so go broke and probably end up stuck in Japan (oh darn..)

    CONTEST!!! I can't wait. This will be good :)

    It closes at 8pm ;).

    Sadly, many of the stores don't allow indoors photography… I do my best to sneak a few shots!
