I am thinking about starting a regular feature about the local retail scene. Since I love shopping. The shops here in Japan are amazing and quite different from home in New Zealand.
Since I run a business targeted at children I take an interest in trends in fashion in the children's market. Over the weekend I snapped these two shots of the window displays at a shop called Bibid Market, in the Aeon Rinku mall.
The outfits are pretty out there for me but I do like the way they have styled the look with cool toys and retro coke bottles. It sums up their ethos pretty well - cool and hip, a bit funky even eccentric? Probably not eccentric actually, these are fairly typical outfits for the young girls I see around here.
Take note of the bag, a cute "pochette" in patch-worked leather. Also the other accessories: necklaces and brooches. Quite a sophisticated ensemble really.
For my boys I definitely won't dress them in anything that has a nonsensical English phrase on it. The t shirt below says Love and Peace Back Alley. (?) OK, Back Alley is the label.
