Item description for Samurai Girl by Julie...

Hello Kitty meets Cat Woman in Samurai Girl, a collection of hyper-colorful, hyper-playful photographs and graphics from the Tokyo-based fashion photographer Julie, a 25-year-old descendant of an ancient samurai family and ex-pop idol in Japan. The samurai girls in these pages re-interpret the kawaii (cute) look with a dose of Lara Croft to make themselves the ultimate Japanese Lolitas-fatales. Are they sex kittens, live Barbie dolls, cosmic superstars, pop idols, Godzilla schoolgirls or geishas? All of the above. Samurai Girl combines youth fantasy fashion with radical trends, club culture chic and a manga aesthetic, at once documenting and accelerating a new Japanese underground, one that will style the world. Julie has collaborated with some of the most influential style leaders of the otaku manga and anime scenes, and her photographs and designs have gained cult status in Tokyo.

Reviews - What do customers think about Samurai Girl?

wonderful work by a talented artist  Sep 12, 2006
I bought this book recently. The images remind me of when I was in Japan before and captures the quirkiness, zeal for life, and craftiness of its people well. It's hard to describe the images in the book except that each one will give you a wonderful new look on Japan and its fascination with manga and kitzchy images dubbed "too cute" and kiddie in the west. Though the themes depicted in this book go far beyond what I had expected modern Japanese art to be.
