Meet the author of "Kamikaze Girls"! January 09 2015
Many of you were introduced to our brand through a movie or book written by this man: Novala Takemoto. "Shimotsuma Story", known as "Kamikaze Girls" in the west, was the story of an unlikely friendship between a tough but naive biker girl and a hard-hearted Lolita whose favorite brand was Baby, the Stars Shine Bright.
Our sister store Tokyo Rebel, who we share a space with, is hosting Takemoto-san next weekend! Come down and meet him! Here's the info from Tokyo Rebel:
WHAT: In-store signing/meet & greet with Novala Takemoto
WHEN: Saturday January 17 from 3-5PM
WHERE: At our store, 158 Allen St, New York NY 10002.
SPECIAL!! Customers who purchase clothing from Takemoto-san's new NOVALAR'S line of clothing at the Tokyo Rebel store will receive a special pin badge and a personal photo with Novala Takemoto!
There will be free postcards available for the autograph signing, however if you have an item that Takemoto was involved in creating (such as the "Kamikaze Girls" novel), you are free to bring it instead.
We're looking forward to seeing you there!
Note that we will be closed from 2-3 to prepare. If you'd like to shop prior to the event, please try to arrive by 1pm - we will clear the store at 2pm.
