Vol. 3 Iss. 2

REVIVAL

Welcome to Issue 2 of Volume 3: Revival! It’s often said that fashion is cyclical: a lot of current trends like Y2K and e-boy/girl just rehash past trends. This issue, we’ll be showcasing the best of Japanese street fashion throughout each era. Part One, Shōwa, covers the Meisen boom in the 1920s to Sayoko Yamaguchi-style in the 1970s. Part Two is Heisei which saw the rise of subculture fashion, particularly in Harajuku and Shibuya. Finally, Part Three is Reiwa, the current era. Y2K fashion is at the height of its popularity, but what comes next?
