• Tokyo, decorated with bright young people
We already wrote about the amazing social phenomenon - Tokyo street fashion youth. So today let us once again, thanks to the American photographer from New York, Thomas ITA. In the spring of 2012 he traveled to Japan and was struck by a bright youth own street style.
The Japanese youth street fashion has emerged as a distinctive social phenomenon in the early 1990s, when young people, especially young women, began to rebel against the traditional Japanese culture.
Especially this situation is aggravated when young girls want to feel equal to men, but traditional Japanese culture does not allow it. Among the girls began to increase the number of depressions. And when people are under stress, they become more self-centered and less able to read emotions and intentions of others, and are aimed at the comprehension of his inner world. They want to express themselves and eccentric dresses have found a way to his emotions.
Sometimes you might think that this is some kind of joke - to dress as bright paintings and fabulous. However, this is not surprising, it's not funny - it's such a fashion!
Applying wit and ingenuity, this talented young people to create a style that to some extent, affected the ultra-modern fashion trends around the world.
Unlike many street photography media modern Japanese street fashion, which is usually taken on the busy streets of Tokyo, the photographer Thomas ITA removed expressive young people in a more intimate setting in the studio.
Introduce young people in such a dress on the streets of our cities is possible, but difficult. Especially fun they will look in a small town where old grannies go to headscarves.
Thomas ITA collected his work in the new book "Tokyo Decoration", which was released by Boof-Klibborn and distributed in the United States.
