Japanese Street Style hits Camden
In the wee early hours of the morning, I was scrolling through Instagram, and spotted the lovely Kiriko Takemura, better known as Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. The Cute Superstar of Japanese J-pop, and ambassador of Kawaii fashion, was in London to perform at legendary Koko in cool, trendy and very colourful Camden. One could say, London’s very own Harajuku.
Sadly her post said the gig was “SOLD OUT”, so sadly I cannot share with you any pictures of the super cool and most pretty little one. You’ll just have to buy a copy of JAPANESE STREET STYLE
and have a look at page 85, to see the pictures I shot of the lovely woman I spotted on Omotesando in Harajuku looking way cool and super stylish, way before she became the superstar that she is today.
What I did manage to get you was a taster of the many cool and funky people, dressed in kawaii style or at the very least, fashionably touched by Japanese style, and I believe looked great. See for yourselves. I’m sure you’ll all agree.
