Both americans n0541 and europeans n0542 can’t get over the fact that Japan and South Korea are the new trend setters in advanced technology and fashion trends. They also have a hard time with Japan, South Korea and China competing and many times winning in athletic events against americans and europeans. Plus current and future generations of japanese and south korean people are either closing in, matching or exceeding many western countries in height.
I saw this fashion coming a long time ago when Electro Techno or Electro Pop became popular in France. The French n0541 started dressing like the 80’s.
Yasutaka Nakata brought his electro-pop feel to the Japanese music scene, and it’s been widely popular in Japan the last few years (Perfume, Meg, Capsule, etc). The music changed Japanese fashion and now recently in America (Lady Gaga)
The younger generation of japanese people between 15 to 30 are much taller than past generations of japanese people. I am a 172 cm white american male and most japanese male tourists and some japanese female tourists visiting the US made me feel short. There are many japanese men and some japanese women that can see over my head.
