Latin Lolitas

From The Weekend, 10:45 am on 1 January 2017

One of the most notable fashion movements to come out of Japan is an uber feminine take on 19th century clothing called the Lolita style. The main version of Lolita is often very light colours like white and pink, though there is the dark version: Gothic Lolita.

Lynn Freeman met with academic and art and design historian Kathryn Hardy Bernal, who is currently researching Lolita's influence in Latin America.
