Gyaru

i’ve written before about Gyaru sub-culture fashion and it’s basically a very girly, pinkish and trendy style that i feel looks better than, say, the Ganguro? ANyway, here’s a nice video on Gyaru fashion and expect more Gyaru related fashion items to be blogged this week! :)

Cutesy Jewelry

Japanese teens are crazy about stuff that’s kawai and you can see it in the way they wear their jewelries. Most of them are costume jewelries of course, although there is the occasionaly branded stuff here and there. A lot of these accessories look like the accessories you see on a little girl’s toy doll…. Oh well, here are some cutesy accessories I found from this particular site; AsiaJam:

Since babydoll dresses are popular

…I would like to put up some cutesy pictures of babydoll dresses for all to see. I am surprised that there aren’t as many pink ones popping up in front of my face yet (i hate the color pink) but here they are. Oh some of the babydoll dresses have a bit of a bohemian feel to it, i think. Don’t you think so?

All images are taken from this really cool site called Handbag. The dresses comes from brands like Prada, Tara Jarmon, Margo London among a few, they are all UK designers too. Prices for these babydoll dresses range from BP105-BP290.

I really like the red one :)

Gyaru Men get their own Store

There’s so many terms used in Japanese fashion. I’m going to have to construct a glossary here one day.

Gyaru (ギャル) is the Japanese transliteration of the English slang word “gal”. Basically, think out-there female, conscious about fashion, her looks, boys and sex. In Japan this seems to mean a minimum of tanning slightly and dyeing hair blonder, a blinged-up keitai (mobile phone) plus plenty of make-up. Ganguro and yamamba are sub-sects of gyaru fashion. men have

Now that you’ve got an image of that in your mind – twist it a bit more and think of gyaru men. Ehhhhhh?!

Well, they do exist. I’ve seen them in Shibuya, although obviously not in as large numbers as the girls. They go by the name of gyaruo or gyaru-oh (the ‘o’ sound is one kanji sound for ‘man’) They probably attract more stares than the women, because it’s such an unusual look on a man. People already know that women will go to outrageous lengths for their looks :)

The gyaruo have now been given their own little shopping haven in – where else? – Shibuya. Shibuya 109 is the place to shop for female gyaru fashion. Now, one of the joint buildings Shibuya 109-(2), has set aside 2 levels dedicated to men’s gyaru fashion. There are 23 outlets over the 2 levels. There have been reported monthly sales totals of 100 million yen since it was trialled in March. Wow!

Looks like gyaru is here to stay for a little bit longer.
