“The evolution of Japan’s Gothic & Lolita movement has been unique. Although its origins can be seen in the English New Wave movement of the 1980s (a trend made famous by the ‘Batcave’, an English Gothic club), the Japanese scene has acquired an originality and popularity all of its own, and is fundamentally different from its Western counterparts. The social and cultural history of Japan is very different from that of the West, which has allowed the county’s teenagers to co-opt the codes of Western Gothic counter-culture and create a new and specifically Japanese Gothic & Lolita style.” – Katsuhiko Ishikawa (Gothic & Lolita)
