Eastern Meets West Style パステルポップ
One thing I have always loved about fashion born in Tokyo is the intense use of layering and mixing of elements that don't seem to go together, but somehow do. I remember going to a store called "BUBBLES" in Harajuku, with sort of the same concept going on. When I asked one of the staff what the concept of the store was, he thought about it for awhile, and said "ハイパーミックス."
Recently I'm super inspired by not only the mixing of lots of layers, proportions and textures, but more specifically, traditional Japanese clothing with modern design. These illustrations reflect what's been going on in my brain, as far as style goes, as well as the use of pastel and neon pop color as well.
