Style Deficit Disorder: Harajuku Street Fashion, Tokyo - Tiffany Godoy. Fascinating photos, useful information not found elsewhere. It is as extremely specific as the name would imply. The hardcover book covers the history of the area as a fashion incubator, profiles of tastemakers, and detailed short histories of the relevant brands (i.e. Hysteric Glamor, BAPE, the big GosuRori names). Interestingly and importantly, it also goes into the main magazines that covered each movement, with sample covers and editorial. Sometimes I wonder if paper magazines are doomed to extinction, but let's face it, most clothes look crappy when viewed on a screen. Maybe paper editorial is still relevant for fringe fashion, as seen in magazines like Kera.
The book also has a map showing Harajuku fashion landmarks past and present.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811857964, Hardcover)

The Harajuku neighborhood of Tokyo has become an international style mecca, a street-level fashion scene prowled by major designers looking for inspiration, and whose local, cutting-edge labels enjoy global cache. Style Deficit Disorder is the first book to explore this remixed, fast-forward fashion hotbed, profiling its most daring and influential designers, labels, stylists, and shops (including Comme des Garons, Hysteric Glamour, Super Lovers, A Bathing Ape, and Laforet). Featuring nearly 200 photos, essays by key Japanese fashion editors, and commentary by Edison Chen, Patricia Field, John Galliano, Shawn Stussy, Shu Uemura and others, this is a must-have, insider's look at an international fashion and pop culture epicenter, past, present, and future.
