Japanese Ladies Fashion in Shizuoka 38: “Chic Ethnic Style”

Very often the Japanese give names to to their shops and wares for the sole sound of it!
I noticed this somewhat strange name in a large boutique inside Shizuoka JR Station Parche Department Store!
But the garments warranted a longer look!

A typical combination to be seen this summer. Although the garments are still reasonably priced by Japanese standards, it is both quite casual and elegant for a hot summer!

Interestingly the prices were posted in English. Quite clever when you realize that Shizuoka Station is a very busy one and seeing many foreigners!
Count 80 yen for a US $ and 100 yen for 1 Euro, that is, if Greece does not leave the Eurozone!

The Japanese are increasingly becoming proud of their legs and they show them whenever possible, although this outfit would be better suited for late afternoon and evening away from the sunburns!
I find the blouse both proper and sexy, but this is a man’s opinion! LOL

Still reasonable, by Japanese standards!

  1. Very interesting to see the prices, although I suppose these are not the mass brands like Uniqlo for example… (which is very cheap in Europe).


  2. Nice garments but quiet expensive from my point of view. It seems that Japan is an expensive place. Of course, I don’t know enough about the wage and price structure there. So it’s always interesting to see the prices in other countries.
