Hats on the Street of Tokyo
Over 240 full-color portraits of the cutting-edge hat culture at the heart of the fashion capital, these images document people in Shibuya, one of the youth-oriented districts in Tokyo popular for eating, shopping, and entertainment. Embraced by trendsetters as an essential item in their wardrobes, the innovations in shape, materials, and hat color reveal an attitude, a lifestyle, and an individual.
