This book is a visual foray into Japans popular and influential Gothic-Lolita and Gothic Punk subculture. It showcases a creative lifestyle synthesized from a remix of Victoriana, the macabre, anime, and theatricality, drawing on the early punks of the 70s and 80s and the club kids of the 90s. Japanese Goth blends disparate elements of global pop culture into something fun, stylish, and uniquepart Marilyn Manson, part Hello Kitty. It attracts established figures from Tokyos trendsetting fashion, art, and design scenes, and has inspired the next generation of designers, tastemakers, and fashionistas. Featured here are key designers, artists, and personalities including Mana & Gackt, Kokusyoku Sumire, Ayako-S, Koitsukihime, Gloomy Bear, and many others.
