I was reading about the return of Fairy Tail and entered into Japanese Fashion Inferno. It's sorta the best! I don't normally go in for anime or the hyper harajuku sensibility, but I do love some graphic innovation, especially when it is perfectly suited to the music.:
And the concepts of their graphic tees are so alive, making all the GNR shirts and classic rock tees you see at stores anemic in comparison.
You gotta give the Japanese credit the way the trick out and tweak old cultural references, combining ideas and words in unexpected if sometimes bizarre ways.
I mean, why settle for the same old plastic surgerized face everyday when you can have interchangeable faces, like those sunglasses; Swatch faces or those new baseball caps with the changing logos. (I am sure some a plastic surgeon out there has had this dream/nightmare.)(Mines would be Palmsie, obvs.)
Asian countries are also (probably happily) once removed from involvement in our politics/rhetoric and can make shirts like this KISS parody that includes Osama and Dubya's faces. Never knew Dubya had such slyphlike shapely hips.
Doc Brown would have never imagined a future with this slogan but I dig it.
A doily collar? Someone's beeen watching too much Judge Judy!
