Fint and An Another Angelus for Spring

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.

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!

In case you missed it, all Fint and An ANother Angelus info is on the previous post here

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! :bow:

      It is a bit hard to blend with onee or anything else. Such a good yet bad problem with distinctive brands :)

    Ahhh this brand is too cute! I used to be really into lolita and while I still own pieces and go to meets once in a while, I’ve been straying away from the fashion due to the lack of practicality. I don’t entirely want to leave the fashion yet but this sort of answers my calling to something similar but more wearable! I absolutely love the second picture under An Another Angelus <3

      Oh your comment makes me so happy! I feel the same way, sometimes I get into a fashion funk and then I see a brand and it completely reawakens me. :)

    I’ve always felt like F.i.n.t is kind of like Lodispotto has a baby with MILK or Emily Temple cute haha. I visited their shop last time I was in Osaka, but their collection then (early fall) didn’t catch my eye too much…the similar brand Amavel had cuter stuff for cheaper lol.

    Larme has become my new favorite magazine as of late, so I’m looking forward to your blogging about it!

      hahahaha that is really true! I like some of Amavels stuff but I think they go a little too far on the otome side for me and Fint seems to keep it a bit adult. I think thats a personal feeling.

      Larme makes me so happy! Glad more variety for magazines is showing up :)

      I’m all about their cardigans :)

    F.i.n.t. seem so have lots of very cute and girly clothes. I like some of them (the more simple item). I think the coords look cute, but some are a bit “too much” for my personal taste. I really like the cardigan with the hearts. Would definitely buy it:3

      I feel like sometimes mixing one or two items in with other pieces is best but agreed I think sometimes the look goes too overboard for me.
