1073-FSX-Street-SnapJaponsim as a fashion genre is loosely described as Western takes on Japanese aesthetics. And while that may seem a fairly archaic concept in an ever-more-globalized world, it’s still as relevant as ever thanks to it increasingly being Japanese fashionistas who attempt to mix said aesthetics, having been raised on a predominantly Western fashion diet.

Non-Japanese fans should aim to be cautious. If in doubt, stick to one piece of Japonica per ensemble (as seen right) lest you segue into costume.
