After the brand introduction yesterday, it’s time to get into the style of Spring for Fint and An Another Angelus.
Before you go down the road about Fint and An Another Angelus just being Lolita-lite, their new Spring line was recently featured in April 2014 issue of Vivi.
Showing off that who and how they wear it are almost as important as the actual design of the clothes. Not very Lolita right, just a relaxed girly feel. Fint and An Another Angelus can both be very mixable brands.
Lili for Fint
Fint’s design for Spring is based on a 1953 movie called “Lili” about a naive French girl who has a relationship with a carnival puppeteer.
(fear warning marionettes)
Honestly I have no idea how Japanese brands get a hold of much less pick their inspiration from 1950s films (Dazzlin did a 1960s french film inspo last year), but there we have it. Lots carnival elements and prim blouses do give homage to “Lili”.
Fint’s Summer Collection Video
Fint also did a collection movie to show off their Summer looks. I can’t say I recommend it unless you like hazy shots and not to many clothing images.
Fint for Spring 2014
Most items from Fint have wonderful details. The Shell collar shirt was very muted but on trend. There are carnival horse themes throughout and majority are wonderfuly done on skirts like the one above.
As usual their cardigans are excellent and they would fit right in with an Ank Rouge, Mercury Duo, Liz Lisa or any other sweet or adult girly brand.
Lots of carnival motifs, some retro nautical looks, knee-length trend.
An Another Angelus
More adult brand “An Another Angelus” is more of the same but with a few more girly twists. An Another Angelus is doing more of a rose theme than a carnival theme. No merry-go-round horse prints to be found. However you will find roses on most every item of Spring “An Another Angelus”
Those ghost-heart shoes are super cute. A rose theme in everything!
Shinjuku MiLord An Another Angelus Blog (http://fint-blog.jp/043) has fabulous shop staff style and here’s some modeling their Spring collection.
Lots of cute style that looks sweet yet comfortable.

These are two brands featured in the new bimonthly magazine Larme. I will be talking about Larme and its style upcoming, but before that I’m going to highlight three brands that are showing Japanese fashion is becoming “everysize” instead of “freesize”. Please look forward to it!
