One enterprising man wears a genuine British paperboy's delivery bag, and, to pick but one profile, Princess, 18, is trying to be a doll and is currently preoccupied with body organs. Mmm. All the subjects are asked the source of their clothes, as well as their "point of fashion" and "current obsession." The scope for sociopsychological discussion is vast, particularly with the preponderance of infantilization, through dolls, bonnets, pop socks, and Barbie, but this is a joyous documentation of the innovative, celebrating the inspirational polytheism of street fashion, captured with provocative, political zeal. Best let the street cats prowl. --David Vincent
Highly recommended if you are interested in Japanese culture or life.
From the highly worshipped pages of Japan's premiere street fashion bible comes FRUITS, from the magazine of the same name, created and photographed by Shoichi Aoki.
What else can I say but every time I look at this book I see something new.
This is a delightful book of quirky and colorful fashions from Japan. I love to see how creative people are, and everyone is so cheerful in their pictures!Published 3 months ago by Heather Hilburn
Fun book! Very well made and interesting to flip through. For me some of the photos/outfits weren't very inspiring but as a whole they were great.Published 4 months ago by Hunter

This is a picture book and text is minimal. It does show street fashion of young people. The main problem however is all pictures done in exactly one manner shown on cover. Read morePublished 12 months ago by aferdman
