1990s. Youth fashion. It was a time of kitsch checked suits and grunge chokers. But not on the streets of Tokyo! Maximalism was the name of the game—bright colour-blocking and head-to-toe accessories. Styles like Decora fashion ruled the day. Layers upon layers of cartoon characters from beloved TV shows, chunky plastic hair clips, and heart-shaped jewels—childhood nostalgia played a major role in this style. In this shoot Pony, a Paris-based Decora kid, shows us his eclectic collection of trash-turned-treasure and proves that our love affair with loud colours and embellishment never quite went away.
