The muse for this edgy Japanese style should be the surly, enigmatic, delinquent and dangerous security specialist, Lisbeth Salander. Japan Fashion Week is on right now (see video) and the look should be called The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which is the name of volume one of the international bestselling Millennium Trilogy by Swedish thriller writer Stieg Larsson. The black leathers and wild and crazy skin tight dresses are perfectly suited to the world class computer geek and security specialist, Lisbeth Salander, the heroine of the trilogy. A genius computer hacker, Lisbeth tolerates no restrictions placed upon her by individuals, society, or the law.
Lisbeth is pale, tiny, pin thin, and taciturn, with a penchant for punk and motor bikes. She has an aura that screams “Dangerous!” so she is perfect for the far out freaky styles of Japanese designers. Japanese designers often exhibit a charmingly creative humourous side, particularly in their choice of head gear, and this look is particularly foxy.
