Candy is a shop in Tokyo who's blog I came across thanks to Mafia-Hunt. I don't know if I've said it before but I have the Tokyo bug...I'm dying to go there and I geek out just looking at photos of the city and street style there. I would definitely make a point to visit this shop in Shinjuku when I make it to that side of the globe. They carry a pretty good selection of new and used apparel for girls and guys, most of which suits a more avant garde style (for lack of a better word). To help sell their wares, they put together these great outfits using stuff for sale in the store—a good source of inspiration to say the least. They have a good eye for shoes making me wonder where the hell they find these amazing stompers.
Some of the brands they carry include: KOMAKINO, PHENOMENON, VINTI ANDREWS, BALMUNG, JUNYA SUZUKI, PLASTIC TOKYO, PLEASE TOUCH ME, MASAYOSHI YAMAMOTO. Almost all of these are new to me and look pretty amazing so expect to see more in depth posts for some of these designers. Ahhh I love Japan.
