SWIMMER LAFORET HARAJUKU STORE PHOTOS: JAPANESE CUTE STATIONERY, KAWAII ACCESSORIES, CLOTHING.


Japanese cute stationery, kawaii notebooks, date planners, calendars, sanrio diaries. Swimmer store in Laforet, Harajuku Japan. Girls souvenir store.

You asked me for photos of cute Japanese stationery/accessories store Swimmer, you got em! I secretly snapped the Laforet location (below), as well as the one in Ikebukuro.

Japanese stationery store, cute Sanrio goods, Hello Kitty Swimmer, Japan graphic design, kawaii art.

Each store is a silly-faced pastel paradise of notebooks, hair accessories, and random objects for the home. (You can see close-ups on my previous post about Swimmer.) From now on, I will be signing all my books with one of their bobble-head animal pens!

Tokyo Laforet department store, Swimmer. Japan cute graphic design, kawaii characters, stationery store, buying cute clothing Harajuku shopping.

The limb-less babushkas and stoner-eyed bears remain my favorites. Kitschy-kitschy-koo!

Would you decorate your home Swimmer-style? Contest winners and a new Death Cookbook video coming right up…

    Cuteness overload. The closest I've ever been to a room full of that much cuteness is the bottom floor of Kinokuniya in Manhattan. Lots of cute stationary. : )

      Haha I love the bottom floor of Kinokuniya Manhattan but it just doesn’t compare to these pictures! I’d have no money left when I left Swimmer. =^_^=

    I would melt in that store! They'd never get rid of me. hehe I would definately decorate with the stuff sold (I was window shopping their online store – so cute!) I rarely like poodle stuff, but the poodle mirrors and contact cases are soo adorable. <3 I'm not a fan of their soap dispensers, though, they kind of frighten me, in fact, I wasn't too big of a fan of the kitchen stuff… The bento boxes are great, though!

      A lot of the products are slightly scary… kawaii meets kowai! I have a soap dispenser shaped like a little person (but no scary face, haha).

        haha! I was always a fan of the little soap dispensers with the animals floating inside clinging to the pump, I used to have one with a panda in it. It was pretty adorable – I re-used it with different soap when it ran out!
