Publisher Comments:

Fruits is a collection of Tokyo street fashion portraits from Japan?s premier street fanzine of the same name. Fruits was established in 1994, by photographer Shoichi Aoki, initially as a project to document the growing explosion in street fashion within the suburbs of Tokyo. Over the last five years, the magazine has grown to cult status and is now avidly followed by thousands of Japanese teenagers who also use the magazine as an opportunity to check out the latest styles and trends. The average age of the kids featured in the magazine is between 12 and 18, and the clothes that they wear are a mixture of high fashion — Vivienne Westwood is a keen favourite — and home-made ensembles which when combined create a novel, if not hysterical, effect.

This extensive collection of portraits represents a unique documentation of the changing face of street fashion throughout the last decade. Colourful, fascinating and funny, this is the first time these cult images have been published outside Japan.

Synopsis:

A collection of Tokyo street fashion portraits from Japan's premier fanzine of the same title, photographed by leading Japanese street photographer Shoich Aoki. It comprises 45 portraits of young Tokyo-based teenagers and represents a single documentation of the changing face of street fashion.
