When we sat down with model and Japan Lolita Association founder Misako Aoki, we talked about the propagation about lolita fashion worldwide. Not only does she feel that lolita fashion has more potential outside of Japan than within it, she thinks that overseas lolitas are more adventurous:
In Japan, the coordination is very conservative – single colour palettes, a very solid theme. Nothing too adventurous. Elsewhere, it seems that it’s a lot more adventurous; the colours are more vibrant. The coordination is something that a Japanese lolita wouldn’t even think about. In that sense, it actually works out – the coordinations are very unique outside of Japan.
