Featuring model Manami Takami, the Takashi Homma Tokyo Decadence editorial for the Purple Fashion Fall 2012 magazine contrasts high fashion with rundown surroundings.

Using less than savory establishments as the backdrop for this photoshoot, photographer Takashi Homma shows what it would look like if a fabulously dressed model wore designer garments in the more rundown parts of Tokyo. Styled by Chiharu Dodo, the ensembles include an unblemished cream-white coat, crisp blouses and lace dresses which are more often seen walking down the shopping district than leaning over the table at a bar. Yet with her unimposing modelling, Manami Takami somehow makes the looks blend with her surroundings.

The Takashi Homma Tokyo Decadence editorial luxuriates decay.
