I already posted about PunkRave a year ago (check out more images here). I told you how Japanese fashion has always fascinated and influenced me, mostly because of the fact that the “Japanese look” is not that easy to achieve, and I love a good challenge!
Japanese fashion is usually full of details, asymmetrical cuts, layers… When you see an outfit it’s usually hard to dissect it and recreate that look yourself, and it looks so perfect!
When I first got into the gothic scene I was mostly into goth lolita look, but then I discovered visual kei and punk lolita, which is I think to this day my favorite style. Unfortunately, I didn’t wear it much because you have to order this kind of clothes from Japan, and they are expensive!
That’s why I was so excited to find Punkrave clothes in regular goth shops.
Punkrave specializes in gothic clothes in general, like more classic Victorian and steampunk styles, but also punk, goth lolita, and visual kei (the”Dir en grey look”) which is very hard to find anywhere on the internet, especially in the western part of the world and at such affordable prices. They have their own designing team, which guarantees originality of their products. Sizes available are up to XXXL. Be sure to check out their gothic dresses and gothic jackets section!
Their pieces look high fashion-straight off the runway, at very reasonable prices! They really took gothic fashion to the next level. with their highly detailed one of a kind extravagant pieces! Even if you’re not into extravagant fashion, they have some pretty classic items, such as black/white shirts, and, as with all clothes, it all depends on how you combine them, in order to achieve both more extravagant, or toned-down, classic look. In any case, even if alternative fashion is not your thing, I’d suggest checking them out, because their clothes are works of art and it’s really not something you see every day!
