5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it!, 12 Aug 2003
This review is from: Fruits (Vinyl Bound)
This book is amazing, I learnt about FRUiTS by coming across it one day on the internet I had to buy this book, as soon as I found it I ordered it. It is a wonderful collection of photos of japanese teenagers and how they dress. Each page is filled with the excentricity of their bright and outrageous outfits, examples being a man with a paper boy's delivery bag and 1970's punks on the corner of streets.
The book is a must have for anyone interested in fashion, design, art or just the Japanese culture. Inspiration can be drawn immediately from its pages as there is so much action and life in the outfits and settings.
All the people in the book have given a few details about themselves which is typically their age, name, where their outfit is from and their current obsession as well as 'point of fashion' the latter is often answered with oddness such as the 1930's, an alien and a big baby.
Shoichi Aoki has created a wonderful book that does the original magazines justice. Once you have this book you won't be able to put it down every time you look at it there is something new to be found within its beautifully structured pages.
