Publisher Comments:

Hawaiand#8217;i is one of the most ethnically and racially diverse places in the world due to its central location in the Pacific. Situated at the crossroads of different cultures, Honolulu has a style all of its own. Honolulu Street Style captures this unique approach as it demonstrates how global trends are transformed by stylish Honolulu denizens to give them a unique, local look. Divided into chapters on hair, hats, accessories, and beachwear, the book features the styles of people encountered on the street and in many different neighborhoods, with an essay on the history and clothing of Hawaiand#8217;i as a whole.and#160;

and#160;

The neighborhood fashion explored includes that of iconicand#160;Waikikiand#160;which conjures images most people associate with Hawai'i, yet the mass-produced tourist clothing belies a deeper fashion culture hidden in local enclaves and local boutiques that foster an upscale, casual style. Chinatown is a neighborhood of dramatic color and exotic touches, and hosts and#147;First Fridayand#8221; events that transform the neighborhood into a crowded hub of artistic, musical, and retail activity. As the photos show, the Kakaand#8217;ako neighborhood draws a crowd that is hip, traveled, and not afraid to venture off the beaten path. In contrast, the Manoaand#160;valley, home to the flagship campus of the University of Hawaiand#8217;i, presents itself as an eclectic mix of students and professionals dressed in everything from boho chic to surfer, skater, avant-garde, and casual professional style.

and#160;

A highly visual book with full-color street style photography, Honolulu Street Style will be a landmark publication in the study of place and style.

Synopsis:

A collection of Tokyo teenage street fashion portraits selected from the popular magazine of the same title. Follows the success of "Fruits (2001).

Japanese people dress so much better than us. Look at this book, or Fruits (also by Aoki), and you will most likely agree with my opening statement. And if not "better", you must admit they have more fun with style than most of America even dreamed possible. The book(s) contain a multitude of vibrantly beautiful full-body, street-scene mugshots of Tokyo's youth in all their cartoony and colorful glory. Seriously, it will make you feel both overwhelmed, entertained and stylisticly bland. And who doesn't want to feel that?
