This Vogue Japan August 2013 photo shoot captures the rebellious punk style that the country's fashion scene has so closely connected itself with in recent years.
Entitled 'Beauty as the Avantgarde,' this editorial was shot by photographer Francois Nars and stars model Daria Strokous as the reigning punk princess. Daria's numerous piercings across her face and ears combined with her doll-like features make for the perfect delicate yet strong female figure. My favorite part about her look is the spike detailing set atop her head while the rest of her hair is set in innocent braids.
