This book is a visual foray into Japan's increasingly popular and internationally influential Gothic-Lolita and Gothic Punk subculture.
It showcases a creative lifestyle synthesized from a remix of Victoriana, the macabre and theatricality that is reminiscent of the early Punks of the 70s and 80s or the Club Kids of the 90s but entirely original and infused with a unique Japanese taste for fusing disparate elements of global pop culture into something fun, stylish and unique.
This realm of Japan's subculture morphs the urban jungle of Tokyo into a fantasyland, blurring the boundary between imagination and reality. "Goth-Loli" has become a lifestyle based on a theatrical mode of self-expression.
Drawing in a growing segment of Japan's youth culture, the "Goth-Loli" look and lifestyle are already inspiring the next generation of American designers, tastemakers and fashionistas. The book features the work of a variety of designers, artists and personalities from the world of illustration, art, graphic design, fashion, music, manga, and dolls.
