Not satisfied with rocking mens, kids and even Zoot suits, Juvenile Delinquent has finally got in on the women’s fashion scene. Think the usual JD Japanese patterns and high quality denim but sized for a fairly neutral B-girl influenced silhouette. Needless to say there are some pretty feminine prints in the collection, but this is a very much the same JD we know and love just appropriately re-sized.
I am pretty much sold on the look and looking forward to seeing the range expand. I think it would be great to have a dedicated women’s shop in Shibuya as JD played a blinder by separating their casual and Zoot suit shop into two amazingly well merchandised shops and I can’t wait to see a JD shop with a female flavor.
If you are yet to see their shops – follow this link fast as you possibly can. Told you it was worth a look.
So if you are after a casual look with a classy Japanese influence then definitely get involved. But be aware of my usual disclaimer whenever Juvenile Delinquent is mentioned – as pretty as it may look you are most certainly marking yourself out as something of a rebel, at least in the context of Japan that is. Personally I reckon with the rise in popularity of Japanese prints this season, I can see the association with the Japanese right-wing gradually disappearing, certainly it is at the point where I would not feel uncomfortable wearing JD or a Sukajyan in Tokyo – but then again I have always liked playing the rebel…
