Harajuku Lovers Watch
Japans Greatest Trend
Harajuku is the common name for the area around the Harajuku train station in Tokyo, Japan. In essence, the area resembles Beverly Hill in California in the United States with its large store and unique niche boutiques. Once a small district of little known stores, the area has grown to become a mecca of fashion and culture for Japan.

The Evolution of Harajuku Fashion
Harajuku fashion was started by teens who dressed in clothes specifically intended to mimic costumes, feelings, music and cultural icons—including American rock band of the 1980s. The trend began to grow as teens would gather in the Harajuku area primarily on Sundays to talk and socialize. Today, the style and fashions of this area have grown to encompass a wide variety of items including clothes, bags, perfume, hats, shoes and watches. And the style is not stopping there. New twists and ideas are constantly inventing and reinventing themselves on the streets of Harajuku, limited only by the imagination of the cities youth.
The Harajuku style first presented itself in clothing. Rich color and layered fabric were used to create unique and interestng patterns and outfits. The style quickly spread to bags – made popular by Gwen Stefani of the American Band 'No Doubt'. The trend is not passing into the realm of the timepiece, with Harajuku watches quickly becoming the must have item amongst young and old alike around the world. The styles are many, but most are accentuated by the cartoonist styles and clashing color combinations.
