It's easy to see why Yu Aoi is a shoo-in for the mori girl title. From her quirky film choices to her whimsical persona, Yu Aoi doesn't seem to inhabit the same mundane world we sometimes feel trapped in. The first half of her most recent photo shoot in Japanese fashion magazine Pretty Style is otherworldly indeed.
Streetwear has never looked quite so ethereal. Yu Aoi manages to make even the baggiest of silhouettes look delicate.
I'm loving the first outfit. The scarf wrapped all around the neck, the amorphous dress and the white sneakers--perfect!
In the second half of the photo shoot, Yu comes back to earth--but oh, what a winsome, charming earth it seems to be!
Watching a movie alone in an old theatre and waiting for someone at the station.
Waiting at the cinema beside a bucket of popcorn and good old grocery shopping.
We too should begin ferreting out charming little moments in our everyday lives.
