Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hello Kitty meets Cat Woman. Samurai Girl is the Japanese Lolita for the new millennium. Following the success of Bambola Kokeshi, Furi Furi, Yoshimoto Nara, Mariko Mori, and Fruits, Samurai Girl is the fresh face of the Japanese underground. Samurai Girl is a psychedelic and playful collection of images by Tokyo-based fashion photographer and ex -Japanese Pop Idol, Julie re-mixes Japanese (sub)cultural photos with manga and video game graphics like an escapist DJ. Collaborating with some of the most influential style leaders of the Otaku Scene, Julie's photos and designs have gained cult status in Tokyo. The Samurai girls in Julie's photography capture the contemporary aesthetic for real-life Barbie dolls, cosmic superstars, video game superheroes, super sexy pop idols, and Godzilla school girls. Samurai Girl combines Japanese youth fashion fantasy with radical trends, club culture chic and manga design. Over 100 photos and graphics re-interpret the Kawaii (cute) wave.
