On this episode of Style Out There, our host, Connie Wang, takes us to Tokyo to meet the individuals pioneering the Harajuku subculture of Kawaii, more specifically Yami Kawaii. This style of fashion accentuates cuteness while incorporating symbols that represent death. Watch this episode of Style Out There to delve deeper into this morbid trend in Tokyo!
In fashion, what’s seen on the streets is just as important as what goes down the runway. R29’s Style Out There takes a look at the drastically different subcultures around the world, examining the myriad influences that color what we wear — and why.
