Last week I had a chat with Elva from Tao Magazine. Tao have been very on the ball with the Mori Girl look in Hong Kong, they're also great at covering local independent designers and artists. They borrowed the Willow Dress and Bird Branch collar (coming soon!) for a pretty rural shoot. See the article below:

I got the most exciting news in my inbox this morning! Book of Deer has been blogged by one of my favourite bloggers, Sophia of Owl vs. Dove. Her blog has been on my daily reads roll for ages, it's a great place to scoop the latest in Antipodean fashion... which I think is finally getting the recognition it deserves! Check out what she wrote about Book of Deer HERE
Japan's poster girl of the Mori Girl movement is undoubtedly Yū Aoi 蒼井優. An actress/ model most famous for her role as Kimiko Tanigawa in the film Hula Girls フラガール, she solidfied her image as a Mori Girl idol when she was cast as Hagumi Hanamoto in the movie adaptation of cult Mori Girl manga Honey & Clover ハチミツとクローバー. She embodies that 'awkward gamine' look perfectly-- ungroomed natural beauty, childlike features, sometimes boyish and usually dressed like a doll in billowy silhouettes and oversized cardigans. Here's a little selection of Yū Aoi photoshoots, she is often shot doing your typical Mori Girl activities.... travelling, reading, daydreaming...eating pancakes.
Yū Aoi's next big feature film will be the film adaptation of popular manga Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Roman Tanto be released this Summer. It will be a bit of a samurai gore fest but no doubt Yu Aoi fans will still flock to see her as doctor Takani Megumi. x
