“My mum came in and I switched to porn, much easier to explain”

If you’re not familiar with the impossibly pink world of the Harajuku Girl, try the below video of the subculture’s poster-girl icon, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu (utterly contagious, if nothing else). It’s a particularly alien world of brightly coloured toys, insanely vivid clothing and… well, as a comment on the aforementioned YouTube clip goes… “my mum came in and I switched to porn, much easier to explain”. Precisely.

For the purpose of this post, you need only know that the poster-girl icon in question is ‘big in Japan’. Blogger/model/singer/entrepreneur, and all-round bundle of cutesy madness – the 19 year-old’s debut full-length album, Pamyu Pamyu Revolution, is set to be released at the end of May; and Steve Nakamura – the art director of its accompanying 60+ page photobook – has sent through some exclusive snaps for our bemused perusal. Thanks Steve, I think…

  1. Love the Japanese fashion culture – they’re not afraid to try anything, and because of that, they often pull it off.
