New Mori Girl Mag

This is a great new Japanese mook called Valon, which is all about the Mori Girl lifestyle. I was excited to find it on ebay. If you know and like Spoon, you'll like this. Click on the pics below for more detail.

You know how Mori Girls like baskets and clogs, right?


Such adorable succulent mini-gardens--and check it: there are Mori Boys, too!

I love Japanese bikes. Crocheted mushrooms? Yes, please!

Lovely, fresh style...

Mori Girls are often musicians, like Yuki Hanai. And Mori Girl picnics are always fun...

Incidentally, if you know of any cute Mori Girl blogs, I'd love to hear about them!

I love the mori girls! I guess I still need a bike and a picnic blanket to get in the gang.

Last week I came across Clever Nettle. She takes scans from Fudge magazine and posts them on her blog. Does that count?

Oh, yes--I think Clever Nettle's Fudge scans can definitely count! Thanks for sharing!

I'm from Japan, Hyogo.
Thank you for comming to my blog.

I didn't know what 'Mori girl', so I googled it!! I've never heard the word 'Mori girl'before. I'm like 'T-shirt and jeans' person, but yes, I can easily find 'Mori girls' everywhere these days. I think they look good! I would have been like them if I were 20's!
How do you like 'Mori girls' style? I assume that it's originated from your own culture? It seems very European for me. Is it not?

I really like Mori Girl style. But for me, at my age--which is definitely past the 20s--it is less about the clothing than it is about the culture (what Mori Girls tend to like, such as cameras, bookstores, baking, picnics, cafes, and crafting).

Yes, I do think that a lot of the Mori Girl style comes from Northern Europe--oh, I live in Europe but am actually American. I need to look up where you live in Japan. We lived in Iwakuni and loved it!

Ah, mori style... It's so natural and beautiful. Wish I could find more images of mori boys, and how to do a more male take on this fashion... ^-^
