If you had a house in the middle of the forest, won't you dress like the mori girls? I simply love this style... Layers of old vintage clothes, sometimes too big for you; boots, lovely hats, flowers in your hair, pocket watches... a mori girl loves fairy tales, animals, nature, summer, autumm, winter and spring.
The begining of the movement is dated in 2007, and it is suposse to start at Tokio, Japan. If 2004 was the year of the Yamamba fashion, these subculture could be a contraposition of the excentric Mamba movement.
They use beautiful textures and fabrics; cotton, floral themes, and complements inspired in mother Earth. They claim a coming back into our ancestors, our origins; a childhood between the forest, running free. With the smeel of the wet grass, the taste of the home cooking meal, the warmth of the fireplace and the stories of our grandmothers.
The first 10 years of this new century has been filled with stylistic excesses and a decadence that has confused and left without guidance a generation eager to find their own image. About to release the second decade of the twenty-first century, new trends show preference for simplicity and eclecticism that lead us back to the austerity of country life.
So, are the Mori girls from Japan the future trend of the actual generations? Of course, we can't know about this, but I'm sure that this would be a trend in the future years. Nowadays, we can see some of these strokes in the current collections of brands like Zara or especially Oysho, preaching with romanticism the return to nature.
I was inspired today by these lovely girls, but the weather was a little bit strange, so I couldn't wear all the things that I wanted.... anyway, I'll try it again, because I love it! By the way, you can find some of these lovely inspiration here.
Did you know about the Mori Girls? What's your opinion?
