Japanese Street Style by Pat Lyttle is the first book to showcase innovative and cutting-edge fashions from Tokyo, one of the strongest and fastest-growing style capitals in the world. Tapping into Japan's rich culture, its fashion scene is an exciting blend of traditional dress and innovative modernity. The book features stunning one-of-a-kind photographs of all the major fashion tribes, from Gothic Lolita and Harajuku to Dolly Kei, Ganguro, and Kigurumi to the popularity of the furry tail.

Inspiring and thought-provoking, Japanese Street Style provides an unprecedented look at an enormously influential current trend in the fashion world-- Galliano, Dior, Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith, and Alexander McQueen have all looked to Tokyo for inspiration from its rich visual culture, fine textiles, and craftsmanship techniques. This first-look guide to contemporary Japanese fashion is a must-read for anyone interested in fashion, trends, and culture.

Not until I walked into a store in SF's Japantown, "Baby, The Stars Shine Bright", had I ever given much thought to the highly stylized fashion of Japanese teens and 20-somethings. There, I saw the sort of clothing I'd only seen in pictures - and occasionally in person - and was dumbfounded that a) it cost so very much and b) that anyone would wear this stuff.

Japanese Street Style is a really interesting and fascinating photo book depicting Japanese fashion among the young set. The beginning of the book defines each of themany styles and then it's basically photos and captions.

If you want to get your creative juices flowing or see some people whose creative juices are already flowing, check out this book. I really enjoyed paging through it
