Last thread hit the image limit >>10361182Thread for all the various casual jfashion styles that don't deverse an own thread due to overlapping and mixing a lot, ranging from frilly romantic to comfy punk.> What brands do you follow for casual/everyday jfash wear?> What upcoming spring/summer 2020 trends are you looking forward to?> What trends do you really hate?> What brands or styles do you wish were more popular outside of Japan?
>>10371295>>10371611>>10371622A lot of brands seem to like to call it Neo Casual and Neo Romantic.
>>10371657> Neo RomanticYes!!! Thank you,, I kept seeing that everywhere in the magazines and not knowing what it meant. Think larme had quite a bit of it
>>10371664>>10371662Those look alright, but the shoes are goofy as fuck
>>10371680Which is funny because in western language this mainly refers to architecture.
>>10371721But New Romantic was the movement that basically led to goth in the first place.
Anyone have any pics/info about sources of real world inspiration for Nana Oosaki's clothing in NANA? I'm curious to know how accurate her clothing is to the 2000s japanese punk fashion scene. As far as I've found, not as many Japanese punks of that era were into RHS and VW as she was written to be?
>>10371702Platforms were everywhere back in the late 90s & early 2000s. They may look goofy to you but to me it reminds me perfectly of every day looks
>>10371759Double decker was the popular knock off version on rhs in the early 2000s and it wasn’t like they couldn’t find VW if they wanted to. Never mind that most of the punk gothic clothing brands were already established in the late 90s.
>>10371759https://www.japantimes.co.jp/community/2005/12/01/general/the-reign-of-vivienne/I think its obvious that VW was and still is big in Japan and while teens at that time may have been too poor to get a ton of real vw it was hyped. Like >>10371856 said knock off rhs were common. Japan ate up British punk stuff, it isnt hard to find how much they love VW.
>>10371702>>10371853Japan never grew out of platforms, even normie shoes have at least a little. I’ve seen kids like elementary/middle school kids wearing big platforms like they were born with them. Have no idea where they got their sense of a balance from!
Bring back pastel goth
>>10371945You;re going to take yamikawaii and you're going to like it
Wouldn't it be a good idea to make a Google doc with some shops for this general? I find them really helpful and it makes curious people have a chance to scope it out!
>>10371873Practice and a sense of no fear. I was guilty of running, kicking footballs and climbing with platforms on as a kid. I find it near impossible to wear soles that are 1cm of less.
>>10371662BLUE STRAWBERRY ON PINK!! I love this so much lol
>>10372100I guess so? But I imagine that would get pretty long.
la belle etude makes some cute stuffhttps://online.labelleetude.com/
>>10372318The skirt version of this is also nice.
An Mille has some cute stuff
>>10372100The social media lists we had in the last thread would be a pretty good start>>10368030>>10368153
I'm not even sure what WC's style is at this point, it's like everything at once (and dinosaur prints).
>>10374173I think WC would fall under street?
Some new brand popped up on my Twitter feed. Doesn't seem to be open yet but it's another neo romantic one and a subbrand of the visual kei brand WRouge, apparently also gets a harajuku store.https://twitter.com/AmiligeOfficial
>>10374341Looks like they're menhera based off the print hoodies
>>10374384Ank also does that kinda print too tho, doesn't make them menhera based.
>>10374173it's the japanese equivalent of f21. Just a mashup of whatever is "trending" with 16 year olds that they try to capitalize on before the next new thing.
>>10372100>for thisWhat is “this”? A lot of these are all over the place as far as styles go. You are better off asking the poster where the photo is from.As a place to start, your best bet is old but still kicking gyaru, punk and larme brands.
>>10374437"This" probably refers to casual brands. It could be useful to have a sheet of brands outside the general lolita sphere, broken down by gyaru/pink/larme/vintage/etc
Some outfits with lots of layering. I wonder if they ever feel hot wearing so many clothes?>>10374391Wouldn't that be Wego? Or Uniqlo/GU?
>>10374466Wego is WC isn't it?
>>10374468They're owned by one comapny (which I think is Wego) but I think of them differently like Liz Lisa/Tralala, Michael Kors/Versace, Dear My Love/Monlily. All brands under the same title brand but not quite the same products/branding
>>10374472Michael Kors/Versace is very different than your other two examples. DreamV and Liz Lisa list everything on the same site and sell in the same stores. It’s like Aerie and American Eagle or PINK and Victoria Secret. More like lines in the same brand than a completely separate brand owned by a parent company
>>10374480Ah, yes those two work better. For some reason I couldn’t think of a popular western brand that was publicly known to be owned by the same parent besides them.
Some staff shots and coords of F i.n.t coming up
>>10376334These are so cute dang, especially the left>>10376335>>10376336>>10376339>>10376330Bless straw hat life. Any good recs for a brand that produces straw hats for a bigger head (I've bought an LL hard straw one in the past and it couldn't sit right)
>>10376629My Axes Femme hat is too big for my head, so maybe there? My head is pretty average size
>>10376629DreamV's straw hats have been good, they're not as cutesy as they were during their gyaru period either.
>>10376631>>10376659Oh man, thank you anons! Gonna get myself some cute stuff!
>>10376710I have a big head and Axes Femme is too small for me. 90s Liz Claiborne is perfect and has some cute styles.
>>10376804> Liz ClaiborneNever heard of them before, but I'll check them out, thank you!
Liz Lisa have these camisoles with a pearl charm that goes at the back and I can't tell whether its cute or looks odd.
>>10378822Oh shit i love this
>>10378822This seems like a holdover from traditional Japanese fashion, which puts more emphasis on the nape of the neck. Like the maiko kimono that are cut very low in the back. Kind of odd to see that emphasis in this context.
>>10378822i have a lot of these.
>>10378877>cut very lowoh anon, you shouldn't talk about stuff you don't know.
>>10378885Yeah it's not "cut" low; showing the nape of your neck in kimono is considered appealing on girls and it's not the cut but just how the garment is worn. Kimono are just sets of fucking rectangles for the most part, none of them are "low cut" in back or front.
>>10378877they're actually a holdover from their gyaru days. just meant to be extra jewelry. the nape of the neck thing is like >>10378893 said, because the rest of the kimono makes you look like a fucking box.
>>10378822Necks are super sexy in japan, putting jewelry there highlights it. It’s part of the whole gyarunliving on the edge thing
>>10378885I know that it’s not “cut,” but I couldn’t think of a better word on the spot to describe the way they wear the kimono low on the nape. Draped?
>>10379174i suppose that works. it's just positioned lower.
What’s the actual difference between Pink House and Ingeborg? Are they just two slightly different styles, like Axes Femme/Axes Femme poetique, or is Ingeborg the cheaper/more casual version of Pink House, like Beth to Victorian Maiden or Ann Taylor Loft to Ann Taylor?
>>10379203Just look at the website, Ingeborg is aimed at women 40+.
>>10379203Ingeborg is their more mature line. According to Google translate, their web shop banner says "Dignified and lovely. Nobility and luster. An adult woman who coexists with conflicting charms."
>>10379221Speaking of mature versions, does anyone remember the mature line from Liz Lisa?
>>10379316JugeETTA or Tralala?
>>10379316Didn't DreamV also have a mature line at some point?
>>10380459dreamV does a lot of trend hopping so they've had a few. mon lily or newlyme is a recent one. mary rose was one during gyaru's popularity,
>>10371628>>10380573That's actually an own thing called ピープス (PEEPS).
>>10380625no. it's just the same trend the instagram/tiktok teenagers are following. it's not it's own thing just because japanese wear it, it's still western y2k era clothing, which happens to be trendy worldwide atm.
>>10380643Still doesn't change the fact that i's considered an own specific thing in Japan.https://mery.jp/1068541
>>10380657It DOES change that "fact" I just explained exactly why.
>>10380670How so? According to your logic, the majority of jfashion styles ~aren't a thing~ then because most consist of wearing western vintage clothing. Also the y2k era had a shitton of styles, it isn't anything specific like that.
>>10380643I don't remember the 00s being kawaii goth made by japanese brands.
>>10380682oh jeez, longsleeve shirts under shortsleeve shirts - what a blast from the past. I'm down for it, though.
>>10379340JugeETTA, thank you!>>10380858Not the worst trend to return
>>10380643This >>10380625 looks nothing like what is trending in western fashion. Western Y2K is more Bratz doll esque and is usually tied to Bimbo fetish wear companies (this isn’t meant to be controversial, it’s just true)
>>10380657I feel like this is exactly the kind of substyle autism the anon in unpopular opinion was talking about.>Magazine spread talks about new trend>"Wow, this is a whole new dedicated substyle with it's own rules, just like gyaru/larme"
>>10380684>model on rightGD I used to wear pants like this all the time with belts like this when I was in my Awkward Phase and now it's in style?!
>>10380904Nayrt, I wouldn’t call it a specific style, but it is a trend that is being done differently in Japan. This would be like insisting that Pink House isn’t jfashion because it developed as a response to an international interest in prairie revival. It’s a street look popular in Japan, wherein the trends are different than what’s being done in western spaces. How is that not relevant to this thread
>>10380904You do realize that coming into the generic casual thread and spazzing that a street style from Japan can’t be here because it’s not super special chocolate-y enough is the same brand of stupid, right?
>>10380879I feel like maybe you're just browsing shittier brands. I see zoomers on YT thrifting and depoping for 90s style, and they are not all dressing like instahoes. Some of them just want to look like they're on Friends, not in Bratz. It's still attentionwhoring, but not whoring like you describe.
>>10380915That's exactly what anon is saying though
>>10380930Yeah, im not saying it's not Jfashion or doesn't belong in the thread. I think I'm being confused with other anons. Im just saying it looks like a trend mainly from one brand and not a whole new substyle called "peeps style"
>>10380932Ah, sorry. my smooth brain somehow missed the dumb line about “peeps” style. Carry on
>>10380917Maybe I’m missing it, but I’m not seeing that described as y2K, just vintage or fashion (since the whole of fashion is in a 90s trend cycle)
>>10380932It's not "one brand" tho, everyone from Ank Rouge, Spinns to WC does collections under that label atm.
>>10380904>>"Wow, this is a whole new dedicated substyle with it's own rules, just like gyaru/larme"Nobody is saying that.
>>10380982the anon they responded to totally was are you blind?
>>10380983I'm that anon and no, I didn't.
>>10380983Since when does saying that a trend has a specific look to it is the same as saying something got rules? IIt's not a trend if it's unspecific in the first place.
>>10380917>I feel like maybe you're just browsing shittier brands. I see zoomers on YT thrifting and depoping for 90s style, and they are not all dressing like instahoes. Some of them just want to look like they're on Friends, not in Bratz.I'm not sure where that sporty goth trend looks anything like whatever is seen in Friends
>>10380994And Rouge doing gothier stuff is a trip, but I like it
>>10381002monochrome animal and camo prints are like everywhere this year
>>10381004> Monochrome> AnimalCool, cool> CamoI have my hesitations
>>10380988well, they already had sporty clothing and "goth" clothing, so now they're combining them in 90s ways
Jamie/Ank got a clearance sale.
>>10381195Yes but giving it a label makes it easier to find outfits (plus it's also the name of a magazine dedicated to that).
>>10381333>it's also the name of a magazine dedicated to thatthe magazine isn't dedicated to it...
>>10381339>PEEPS(ピープス)が生み出した「ピープス女子」は1つの新しいファッションジャンルとして令和時代の新しいファッションカルチャーを築くCan you not read?
>>10381339You sound like someone that doesn't even know the mag.
>>10381332Huh, never heard of Jamie before. It looks like they're the edgy sibling of Ank?
>>10381549Yes, it's Ank's edgy subbrand.
Coming back with some more straw hat pics, this time some different brands tooHoney Cinnamon
>>10381761an another angelus
>>10381762Also not a straw hat but I want a straw bag too
>>10381333oh I was never against labeling anything. I just meant I don't think it's so different from western trends
>>10381760Has anyone actually bought from Le Flacon? Their photos are pretty and I like the colonial Vietnam/L’Amant aesthetic, but there’s clearly a lot of photoshopping going on. The proof photo from the one Le Flacon dress I’ve seen on LM looks underwhelming.
>>10381757here you go, hat-anon
>>10381763I have a couple but only use them with cotton and linen dresses/skirts since the harder ones can catch on and damage chiffon.
So after doing some research I finally figured out that the dark girly style in pic related is called Jirai Onna kei (地雷女) which translates to landmine woman. I came across the term when looking at Japanese makeup videos. Some brands that sell this style are Ank Rouge, Jamie Ank, Bubbles, and Dear My Love. Its interesting because ank rouge and dear my love used to be Himakaji brands, then they changed to Larme style, and now they're this new style.
>>10383246holy shit anon. that's not the style name, that's clearly a joke term for that kind of dark larme makeup. a landmine woman is an insult for a woman who "becomes annoying or crazy" after a guy starts dating her. the only mention of that term for fashion/makeup is on one youtube channel that posted 2 videos a few months ago. god i hate fuckin weebs.
>>10383263samefag but actually upon looking into it more the youtube makeup videos are actually based on a v-youtuber who goes by 地雷女 on chinese web. so even more wrong...deary wasn't hime kaji either kek it's just thename of a yumetenbo sub-brand that sells cutesy clothes.
>>10383270deary/dear my love and ank rouge WERE hime-kaji though. they both started off as liz lisa knockoffs and adopted to the times.
>>10383270>dear my love wasn’t himekaji God I hate being old and having to witness ignorance first hand
>>10383309>>10383311no, it was never solely hime kaji and it was selling MA*RS style items like pic related, it's not a hime kaji brand (hime kaji was barely a thing, it was basically romagyaru with less boho anyway). but deary is just the cutesy side of yumetenbo that changed with the trends, that's why it ""turned"" into larme, it was never a specific thing. that still doesn't change anon's idiotic landmine woman bs.
>>10383246You are late to the party and it's still called neo romantic, if you want it extra edgy just use 毒ロマ
>>10383344>it was never solely hime kajinobody said that, keep your autism on track
>>10383344>hime kaji was barely a thing, it was basically romagyaru with less boho anywayyou have it backwards, romegyaru wasn't really a thing, himekaji grew into its own thing outside of it's gyaru roots, especially since liz lisa slowly started moving away from sterotypical gyaru styling and make after 2014.the landmine woman thing was dumb, but dear my love was mostly himekaji. you flat out said it WASN'T himekaji at all.
>>10383246Dear my love used to be a gyaru brand, rather than Himekaji specifically, because they're more of a trend hopper brand. It's like larme, their style is more or less whatever is popular in the streets
>>10383371>romegyaru wasn't really a thing NTA but liz lisa started as that. Himekaji came way later. Aslo no, they weren't mostly anything. Your pic isn't even himekaji. Stop acting like you know what you're talking about.
y'all can fight over gyaru brand history in the gyaru thread >>10379442
>>10383395don't send them there, they're idiots!
>>10383384Bitch what are you even talking about
>>10383263>>10383263Okay. Then why are so many girls on Insta tagging themselves with it in pic related? I think this a style, even if it didnt start out as one. I probably should've mentioned that someone living in Japan who wears this style told me its a thing when I posted in a forum asking about it. She said it started as a joke then turned into an actual style.
>>10383577Those girls don't even share the same clothing style, it's just makeup.
>>10383577Half of the girls in the tag also tag their posts as yandere and will you claim that's a fashion too?
>>10383577>someone living in Japan who wears this style told me its a thing when I posted in a forum asking about itproof or gtfo
>>10383577that's chinese, anon...
>>10383577>>10383263wouldnt this just be the eastern equivalent of egirl/manic pixie dream girl? not exactly a style
>>10383638anon chose to ignore my post about how they're following a famous v-tuber who's called landmine girl in chinese. her name is a play on the term being used unironically in china and japan to describe girls who sweet talk a guy into a relationship but pull a 180 and are psycho when they get into one.
>>10383595Pic related Its hard doing research just using google translate but I found discussions about it, no articles about it being an actual fashion. https://detail.chiebukuro.yahoo.co.jp/qa/question_detail/q14216313174?ccode=ofv&pos=2The yahoo discussion also mentions a style called Mass-Production Type Nerd 量産型ヲタクwhich actually has some articles with specific coords if you Google it.https://www.lafary.net/culture/54148/The anon above might be right that Jirai Onna is more of a makeup style. The clothing style is probably mass produced nerd
>>10383675That doesn't sound like a japanese person at all considering the usage of "kei" but nice try.
>>10383675>a style called Mass-Production Type Nerd 量産型ヲタク/jp/ here, that ain't a style but originally an insult used by the japanese otaku community for people into mainstream anime that call themself otaku
>>10383685Yeah, it just sounds like a new word that is replacing otasa hime オタサー.
>>10383684Never said they were Japanese, just someone who lives in Japan. >>10383685Interesting. Pic related pops up when I Google 量産型 as well as the Lafary article I linked above
>>10383688Whoops meant 量産型ヲタク not 量産型
>>10383675lol did you write this? how the fuck are we supposed to believe this is someone from japan?
>>10383685based on the article, it seems to be both though. a term can be derogatory to some and still a style. people always mock trends, like hipster and egirl. this really sounds like a similar vibe to egirl, except the japanese ones want to look matching whereas western ones want to look ~ u n i q u e ~
penis what now, rojita?
>>10383704god you are autistic.
Can I get a reccomend action for a brand that is girly light colors/ jewel tones. Not a fan of the whole tulle dresses but anything thats a good transition from looking like a child to adult?
>>10383892omg, it's this
>>10383892You think you’ve seen it all, but then Rojita>>10383942Anything more specific? Tulle dresses are in right now, and colors tend to change by the season. What’s your budget, what styles do you like, etc?
>>10383953Honestly I am very open because I am currently purging almost half of my wardrobe right now. I feel like what I was wearing just didn't help my baby face, I've never been a real fashion follower, so basically anything I'm really just up to anything I'm a fan of any and all collars and very versatile pieces so that I'm not cluttering again. On the cheaper side is really preferable.TL;DR anything just don't break my wallet and doesn't make me look like a toddler.
>>10383942Axes Femme currently meets your criteria. Look at their webshop, the old stuff you find from them secondhand is usually too short or otherwise bad designs for the average westerner. Newer stuff is great though, very mature
>>10383968Will look into it, thanks
>>10371945FUCK pastel goth
>>10374437>>10374457Yeah we could probably have it like the taobao sheet, maybe keep track of what shippings, whether you'll need a proxy etc
I had a pre-order with Liz Lisa from before the halt on shipping to US. Today they sent out a refund. I lost $6 on the conversion back and forth, but it is what it is.
>>10383962Might want to peek into last thread, there were a lot more mature looks in there. I think Cecil, Maison and Honey Salon could all match your preference
Does anyone have experience shopping through Zozotown? It seems preferable to shopping from individual brand stores because you could (hopefully) buy from multiple shops without having multiple shipping fees, but I'm not sure if that's how it actually works?
>>10384449Oh nooooo those are so cute. I can feel my wallet imploding
>>10380988Thanks now I picturing them all copying my old gym kit look with a look of distain. Though the look was kinda in ginger snaps and some other stuff.
DearMyLove made some neo romantic collab with multiple artists, gotta dump.https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/dreamv/item/529628/
>>10388361Kinda Reminds me of Juria's early style before she went Amo clone, I wonder what she's doing nowadays.
>>10388362Seems like she finally got her underbite fixed, I wonder if the people she scammed over got their money backhttps://www.instagram.com/julia05_23/
>>10388361I have no idea what’s going on in that center. Is that a vest?
>>10388401A tactical vest, yes.
>>10384483Yes and it goes through Buyee. They make it super easy to consolidate packages from storefronts and secondhand sellers on Y!Japan
What are some of your favourite trends this year? I'm super into the colour blocking that's been going on recently.
>>10389347That black x purple is finally a big thing, I always hoped for that to happen.
I'm interested in compiling a store spreadsheet but I have absolutely no faith in my ability to pick apart styles and the like.
>>10390191Considering all the brands overlap and mix styles, that's hard to begin with so you probably would sort them by broader terms like girly, vintage, dark, etc.
I see the brand Secret Honey pop up a lot lately as part of the neo romantic trend. Where did they come from? Pretty sure it's one of those brands that was a totally different style before
>>10392869Secret Honey is one of them old brands, they used to be more similar to what we called himekaji/otome (aka weeb wear for japanese girls), similar vibe to Axes Femme and Amavel. They're most well known for their Disney collabs
>>10392871>old brand>himekaji/otome>weeb wear
>>10392885>>10392908I think that anon mistook the previously discussed 量産型ヲタクaka style of male idol group fans as "weeb wear".
>>10392960Himekaji, Otome, and Mass-Produced Otaku are all very different styles.
>>10392965量産型ヲタク isn't even an own style, what it looks like varies depending on what type of girls band dudes want to fuck.https://nlab.itmedia.co.jp/nl/articles/1912/30/news017.html
>>10392871I think you confuse himekaji with otahime, which while being weebwear has nothing to do with these brands.
>>10392971this. god i hate westerners.
>>10392871Otahime wasn’t a real thing please stop
at this point I think 80% of the jfashion names the west used in the early 00s are either made up or mistranslations. you can't find shit on otome, dolly kei, larme kei, etc in japanese, they consider it all various subtypes of "girly"https://woman.mynavi.jp/article/190826-20/2/
>>10393285I did get tired of all the nit picking and rules, but it did make it easier to search up in Western circles. Searching “ ガーリー” gets you mostly fashion but searching “girly” gets you a ton of random shit...
>>10393303could just call it girly kei, worked fine for all the older fashions that would have been gone unnoticed if it was for direct translation (visual kei, pop kei, fairy kei, etc)
>>10393285Larme was literally just whatever was trending in the magazine
>>10393601I know, the magazine itself calls their style sweet girly, hence why I complain about the west mislabeling.
god i want this
>>10393328Sure, but then we get into the whole “kei” thing again which spurs a lot of ire here on cgl.
>>10393766considering all the wrong used names so far are also "kei", it doesn't make much of an difference anymore
>>10393789also NKH and other japanese sources already called Larme "girly kei" in their translations to begin with
>>10393603I'm agreeing with you anon.
>>10383246Misako just did a landmine make-up video
>>10403445Fits the boat, after all nobody wants to date her, lol.
Travas Tokyo is also slowly switching from their usual punk style to the dark romantic stuff.
>>10403708even Liz Lisa is tagging their posts as mass production otaku. so much for it not being real.
>>10403445Nicole Fujita made a video on it toohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzlw6qQ1BII
landmine? is that what were calling it
>>10404166No, the dark romantic fashion is called neo romantic, "landmine woman" is a new term for nutjobs, see https://machicon.jp/ivery/column/82879
>>10403785>2020>implying brands just don't slap on every popular tag to increase salesHell, they even tag everything as "combat clothes" and that's obviously not their style.
>>10404156>she even says it's about looking like a psychokek
>>10404166Usually we call that yandere.
>>10404184this. the term landmine woman is for the makeup because of a vtuber.
this is getting as embarrassing as when people tried to claim that otasa no hime is an own style and not just a joke name people went along withhttps://tokyogirlsupdate.com/otasaa-no-hime-20150857190.html
>>10404191I used to be the “hime” in this case in clubs at university, minus most of these points. Just was treated like a princess most of the time.
DearMyLove is having a design contest, you can enter on Twitter by posting your artwork as #ディアマイラブのデザイナー2.
>>10407442Some of the entries are cute but others....were stuck with this neo romantic trend for awhile aren’t we? I’m so sick of black/grey/ivory/dusty pink colorways
>>10407448Posting other faves
>>10407442>>10407448Meh, these are really similar to what they already sell
Some artist on Twitter made an illustration on the stereotype differences between mass-production (girly style) and landmine (neo romantic style).
>>10408173stop trying to make this shit happen. it's not going to happen.
>>10408177I don't, it's more proof that it's just stereotypes.
>>10408177>post listing stereotypes in girls>thinks it's trying to make a thinganon, it's literally trying the opposite
>>10408173could someone please translate it? i think these trends are fun regardless of how you call them.
>>10408179>>10408183Guys...>>10408177 is a joke, she's clearly referring to the image itself.
>>10408226Considering the tantrum some people threw few weeks ago, I don't think that's a joke.
>>10408233it's a quote from mean girls...
>>10408235you clearly didn't watch the thread
>>10371759She was based mostly off Western alternative clothing opposed to visual kei styles. That being said, Punk Rave being one of them, those weird skirt/short designs with the attached garters and thigh highs and ruffly tiered skirts were everywhere in the early 2000's in Asian alternative wear.Back then a lot of shops carried clothing based off Western punk wear, especially tops and jackets. So, that's where you see a lot of leather jackets, tank tops, and the ilk. The skirt/short styles she wears though was kind of unique to Japan in the early 2000's.
>>10371759The other thing I thought of, Balzac maybe being the easiest to find, usually it was only the band members who dressed super crazy. When you watch old videos of punk shows in Japan, the audience is usually rather plainly dressed with many even just wearing their school uniforms or t-shirt/jeans.
spur made a short style article on neo romantic https://spur.hpplus.jp/fashion/special/a01_farfetch1911/content01/area02/
>>10409253I wish they wouldn't have tried so hard to make an outfit solely from the "high fashion" brand goods they sell, it barely looks like what people usually wear.
>>10374341They have a store in Laforet now, it's really cute romantic stuff.
Anons, is there a nice jpn store that sells elegant / suggestive stuff like BOSSY LADY (taobao) https://shop33953978.world.taobao.com/ ?
>>10411167I don't think that's a thing outside of some agejo brands.
>>10411167Closest you’re going to get is some gal brands. In general for street fashion, China does best with elegant/flowy, Korea with street/edgy, Japan with cute/floofy. There’s always overlap but those are the easiest to find generally
>>10411167rady and dazzystore probably have something you'd like. if you're okay with 2nd hand, those brands and also daTuRa and CECIL McBEE (you may also find some new stuff).
>tfw you haven’t been able to wear any of your new clothes this year because of corona
>>10411651you can always wear stuff at home or to shopping like literally anyone else
One of my favorite stores Rivet + Surge just closed down. I assumed it had to do with coronavirus. I always wanted to order a lucky pack from them, but I was too late and would say maybe next year. At least there are still a lot of pieces I can buy second-hand online.
>>10413634Nta but I never want to get dressed up just to hang out in the house. Groceries and walks are the only reason cobwebs aren't forming in my closet.
>>10411651Is akiba kei still a thing? I remember reading some Japanese articles about how anime clothing was becoming more popular
>>10416578it's still a thing, grew even bigger with the itabag craze
Some recent Super Groupies coords
>>10416578what's "anime clothing"? Just clothes with anime art on it? Or stylistically similar to clothes in anime?
>>10416741>akiba kei>not self-explanatiory
>>10416792gotta dump some while at it
>>10416792it's not self-explanatory retard. akiba is also a cosplay/maid cafe mecca so it's totally reasonable to think people would make a fashion similar to clothing in anime. what you're posting just looks like fugly otaku crap.
>>10416804>what you're posting just looks like fugly otaku crap.That's the point, you could have just took a second of google to find out.
>>10416807>huurduur just googlenot our fault you're too stupid to explain a simple concept
>>10416807Stop. This thread is already bad enough without people like you acting too good to answer anons' questions. I hate when people like you shit up the thread with poor quality dumps from google images and bring your cunty attitude.
>>10416814just because you don't like it, it doesn't mean it's google images
>>10416809>not our fault you're too stupid to explain a simple conceptop literally explained it in her first post
>>10416820no, she didn't. that's why anon asked her to explain what she meant >>10416741. the term akiba kei also applies to cosplay style clothes like maid outfits and crap, not just shirts with anime prints.
>>10416821>the term akiba kei also applies to cosplay style clothes like maid outfits and crapIt really doesn't
>>10416831lmao maybe you need to google it.
Do you idiots still not know what kei means?? Akiba kei isn't a fashion.
>>10416845it literally refers to anything that's stereotypical otaku, and I don't think you see greasy neckbeards run around in maid outfits
>>10416853>I don't think you see greasy neckbeards run around in maid outfitsI have some bad news...
(I'm the anon who asked what anime clothing is) Sorry, didn't mean to start an argument. I was mainly asking because I had a notion of what Akiba kei entails but I saw someone reply with a pic of an outfit (that didn't fit my idea of akiba Kei) with an anime print shirt, and another anon replying about anime clothing. So I didn't think they were all talking about the same style.
>>10416569R+S had some cute clothes. Is this considered too normie for J-fash? Either way I loved the cute details that you wouldn't get from stores in the west.
>>10417046Forgot the file
>>10416879You should be allowed to ask questions and not deal with salt from the person dumping the clothing. Most of these jfash threads are full of noobs and people who think following a hashtag and reading IG posts makes them an expert.
>>10417091you sound new yourself, considering dumps as explaination have always been a thing
>>10417049>>10417048>>10417046Still looks very influenced by kawaii culture, but probably more of roomwear.
>>10383263what are you talking about? ive seen multiple 地雷女 makeup videos, recently i think girls are trying to ~reclaim it~
>>10417114they are as much of reclaiming as all the yandere girl makeups, some jp youtuber explaining it in english just for youhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16MnDKnJ3sM
>>10417114you maybe should consider the date of that anon's post
>>10416741I didn’t see this until now, I was the original asked about akiba kei. I’ve seen both definitions of anime t shirt + itabag and also casual anime emulating outfits (like casual cosplay bur actually quality). I was mainly asking out of interest bc I remembered the PMMM earth music ecology collab a few years ago and I really enjoyed the anime theme without being in your face
>>10417114You're replying to something from april, anon.>>10417642I've seen both too. It's no unreasonable to ask for clarification.
>>10417642I've sometimes seen what you're referring to (anime-emulating outfits / casual cosplay as clothing instead of costume) called "2.5D" - as in "someone who's trying to look somewhere between 2D anime and 3D real life" - but I'm not sure if that term was ever widely used or is even still used today.
>>10417696china definately uses that in the form of 二次元
>>10417696>>10417735>>10417653Thank you gulls! It can be a little confusing, 2.5D is a pretty good descriptor!
New DearMyLove x Sanrio collab, Pretty big collection with 7 different styles
>>10421262Hello KittyEvery set seems to have a swimsuit option which is interesting
>>10421263Little Twin Stars
>>10421265Pochacco (only one with no swimsuit- perhaps not as popular?)
>>10421267Kuromi (only one with shoe option)
>>10421262These are pretty cute designs but the dresses look so cheap and poorly made. Maybe I'm just getting old and jaded.
>>10421272i've only ever bought shoes from them and they surpass shoes from made from that gross soft pleather by a long shot, whilst having some nice padding. It's ok for the price you pay, especially since all of this stuff will be heavily discounted eventually. The kuromi key chains will the only thing i will buy personally.
>>10421262Are the swimsuits actual swimsuit material? I’m more interested in them, they seem cute even if vastly impractical.
>>10421272Dear My Love has always been a pretty cheap brand. Their stuff is not the highest quality. Some of their offshoot brands had slightly better quality though.
>>10421294They are some polyester and polythurane nylon mix, I think they are more intended for strolling around the beach than actual swimming.
