Japanese Schoolgirl Inferno by Patrick Macias and Izumi Evers

Japanese Schoolgirl Inferno by Patrick Macias and Izumi Evers is one of those books you pick up and can’t put down. It details some of the greatest and strangest styles to come out of Japanese school girl fashion. A socio-anthropological twist is given to this book with elements of history and culture the authors effortlessly weave in to the informative text. It’s not just Hello Kitty and lip gloss for these gals, it’s taking over the world one trend at a time.

    Aww you beat me too it! This is definately a book that will be checked out, and used for book talks. I’m a little disturbed by the “Black Power: Sexy Gals” who later become Gonguro or Ogals. Totally politcally incorrect, and would probably be beat down in compton. I did enjoy the bad girls section which explained the biker girl image, clearing up some burning questions I had about “Kamikaze Girls.”
