KERA magazine – Japanese gothic punk style. KERA iPhone app.

How could I not love this clip? It features some of my favourite KERA magazine models Re:NO, Lancer Bee and Akira, about models who are also in bands.

It also features so many of the gothic/punk labels I love, and own items from: Peace Now & Black Peace Now, Sex Pot Revenge, Algonquins, Sexy Dynamite London, Stigmata, Banana Fish (see my fave Banana Fish dress here, and a bit about the Shimokita Banana Fish store here)…. even gal label GladNews gets a look in.

Sex Pot Revenge celebrates its 10th anniversary all June, as does Banana Fish – congrats to these great labels! Although, sadly, Banana Fish on June 9th ceased trading and is no more – sob 🙁  
Back to the video.  I have the skull ring that is in the clip at 4:17 and love them (I have one in black and one in green).   I also love the coloured hair you see in the vid – pink, blue, red, purple. But onto the clip itself – you wanna see, right?


Thanks to Bite Hard blog for alerting me to this great little vid. It really takes you back to Tokyo and its fashion, when you can’t otherwise be there 🙂

And did you know, there’s even a KERA iPhone app! Volumes 1, 2 and 3 are available, for when you just “have” to get a dose of gothic lolita fashion, while you’re on the way to work, school or shopping.

In older news, here’s a short vid of Aya Kamiki at a KERA magazine shoot back in 08,  (copyright is owned by GIZA Studio and KERA)


And finally, scans from June 2010 KERA (I’m not fond of the music track on it, so recommend the mute button!)


You can also find current scans of the June issues of other magazines: Egg, Loveberry, Cutie, Cawaii (from 09), Scawaii, Popteen, PopSister and Zipper, if you’re more into gal style.
