Have you met 紅林大空 • Kurebayashi Haruka yet? Known simply as Kurebayashi, she’s become a popular Kera model, illustrator and fashion icon with a really cute, upbeat outlook on life!
At the moment she’s experimenting with frizzy bleach blonde hair extensions, but she’s had practically every hair colour under the sun – usually in a cute bob or pixie cut! She often pairs this with dolly eye make-up, platform sneakers and pink, blue or yellow-themed clothing and accessories from 6% Doki Doki, Superlovers, Galaxxy, Monomania and more. She also loves animals and animal print. She sometimes even pins soft toys on to her sneakers or hair, and even uses a stuffed animal-shaped bag! You can check out more outfits on her blog, here.
She loves mixing bright colours and wacky accessories to make adorably offbeat outfits, usually with her friends Kuma Miki and Junnyan. Here’s a goofy picture of her with Junnyan (below) snapped by our favourite Harajuku resource Tokyofashion.com!
Best of all, Kurebayashi isn’t afriad to accessorise with her snaggle-toothed smile. Actually in Japan, if you have teeth that stick out a bit – especially the “canine” teeth or “fangs” – they’re considered SUPER cute. They call this “yaeba” (やえば）meaning “double tooth” and some girls even undergo surgical procedures to achieve the look! *_* So if (like me) you’re worried about your snaggle-tooth, stop worrying, cos they’re officially kawaii. ^_^
In Kera magazine she models all kind of styles, even Lolita! It’s almost hard to recognise her on the left there, with the blonde wig and blue Angelic Pretty dress. What a doll! ^_^
So of course, we have to finish off any style icon post with ideas on how you can achieve this look for yourself! All of these items are in store RIGHT NOW, with the exception of the Doki Doki dress and the sneakers. All you’d need to complete this look is a big furry jacket or printed zip-up hoodie!
As always, if you’d like us to import some more Doki Doki dresses or run another pre-order please let us know! We know many of you have been hanging out for their accessories, so give us a head’s up on the clothing too! ^_^ /
