Do You Know "PINK HOUSE"?

Hello our valuable customers, 
today we would like to introduce you a Japanese brand that has not yet been famous in the US. 

        Pink House is a Japanese Gothic lolita fashion label. The brand, started in the mid-1970s was among the first brands to bring the concept of designer produced, Lolita style clothing to the masses.

        The early productions of Pink House in the 1970s alongside Milk were originally designed to provide housewives and stay at home moms something cute and colorful to wear. The clothing, designed to mimic the style and cut of clothing worn in television series and films such as Little House on the Prairie and Ann of Green Gables was mildly popular but served more so as a jumping point for multiple other brands that would soon follow suit and lay the groundwork for what would become the Gothic Lolita fashion style in Japan

        Known as an elegant, classic form of the Lolita fashion scene, Pink House produced multiple designers and offshoots including the likes of Kaneko Isao, who worked on both Pink House and Ingenborg designs before eventually starting his own labels, Kaneko Isao and Wonderful World with more than 67 standalone locations around the world.

        When Pink House opened their first Lolita themed shop in 1979, they were credited with being the first truly Lolita fashion brand. Today, Pink House no longer produces purely Lolita clothing, instead using the 19th century style designs as a jumping off point for more modern, practical clothing.

It is very hard to find clothes with such details today. We have over 50 Pink House pieces in our store. Please come take a look at them :) 

Thank you and Have a Great day,

New to you? Japanese Traditional Working Clothes for Your New Extraordinary Outfit!

These extraordinary pieces right here, do you recognize what they are? Today, we are going to introduce you Japanese traditional working wear called Cho Cho and a little bit of their history.
        Cho Cho is one of Japanese working clothes for Tobi construction workers, called Nikka Bokka or Gotogi. The shape usually gets extra buggy toward the bottom and turns narrower from the lower part to the uncle. The colors and the patterns differ from a region to another in Japan, yet White serge or Navy serge are likely to be preferred by more experienced workmen while young ones like to wear fancy colors like Red or Purple.

        There are functional reasons why those are made in this unique shape. The wide thigh makes it easy for them to bend their legs so that they can climb up and work anywhere high. They also function almost as 'cat whiskers.' Especially in iron frame construction, there are a lot of sharp edges sticking out to their path. The workers can sense any obstacles by having those buggy parts touching the sharp edges before their legs do. Additionally, since those workers work usually in very high places with strong wind, these pants are their air speedometer that wave in the wind for the workers on the ground to see if their coworkers up high are safe.

1980                            2000                               Now

These days, those Nikka Bokka pants started to be accepted as 
an unique item for fashion but not just as working wear.  

If you are a pioneer of a new extraordinary style, We have three of them in stock. Navy, Grey, and White. Come try them and enjoy the new silhouette on you.▽
