Pink House/ Natural Kei Updated 1/24/2010


Research on Pink house/natural-kei style.  This is to help me keep track of my links:

ARTICLES/INFORMATION

according to English lolita wiki page:
"The lolita style began in the 1970's with brands such as Milk and Pink House making outfits that resembled Canada's Anne of Green Gables(which is widely loved in Japan) and, to a lesser extent, Little House on the Prairie."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gothic_lolita

"Cute clothes are deliberately designed to make the wearer appear childlike and demure. Original cute clothes were simple white, pink and pastel shades for women and more sort of bright and rainbow coloured for men. The clothes were often fluffy and frilly with puffed sleeves and lots of ribbons, - a style known as ‘fancy’, or alternatively were cut slightly small or tight and came decorated with cartoon characters and slogans. In the first half of the 1980s the most fashionable design house in Tokyo was  Pink House Ltd.’ which produced adorable outfits for budding cuties.Pink House was so sought after that the Hakuhodo research institute began to refer to young people aspiring to the Pink House image as the  "Pink House movement.’ (Hakuhodo, 1984:227) Women’s underwear was also cute, the dominant taste being for puritanical white pants and vests, in addition to the infamous white tights, frilly ankle socks or knee length ‘school-girl’ socks. Then there was the understanding habit of manufacturers in placing great lengths of elastic in underwear so that women’s pants often looked like a little girl’s off but fortunately stretched to three or four times the size in service."
