The nue romantics

If you do an image search for the new romantics/new romanticism you’ll get photos of a bunch of new wave bands a lot of you have probably never heard of.  I’ve always had a soft spot for this look because I like the idea of blending things together that shouldn’t necessarily work.  If you were not around for new wave in the 80’s this idea/style is still around and looks even better now as done by some of the visual kei bands of Japan.

Anyway, setting this adorable Lirit Coat from Tokyo.Girl with all its vintage lace and fur trim against the very classy pastel pink dreadlocks of Hill from Tableau Vivant put me in mind of all those new wave bands (done with less makeup on my part) I grew up on and still very much enjoy.
