Metamorphose Harajuku

Scenic Sekine Bldg.
Tokyo, Japan
TEL: 81-3-3406-6978

One of the many fashion subcultures of Tokyo is the Lolita look: bows, lace, crinolines, and bonnets. In other words, clothes that appear to belong on fairytale characters. Metamorphoses is one of the leading clothing lines for the Lolita look, and its Harajuka outlet (next door to the La Foret department store, which also stocks the line) is one of the best places to find the line's over-the-knee lace trimmed socks, multilayer petticoats, lace headbands and bonnets, and frilly parasols. The staff helps the uninitiated coordinate a complete Lolita look.

Insider Tip:

For a Lolita fashion show, arrive at Harajuku's Yoyogi Park on the weekend when Tokyo's teen fashion crowd arrives and shows off their unique looks.
