Few stores last longer than the current trend on Harajuku’s ever-evolving Takeshita-dori. So when a store like ACDC Rag has two locations, one of which is a multilevel store, you know you’re going to get something special.
ACDC Rag’s enduring popularity could have something to do with its celebrity endorsements from famous idol groups like AKB48. Or it could just be that it’s a reliable place to get good fashion bargains. Unlike many of the stores lining Takeshita-dori, ACDC Rag is almost fashion neutral. Regardless of what style you identify with, you’re sure to find something you can make your own. For example, if you love the punk sensibility, then ACDC Rag has plenty of neon petticoats, knockoff Doc Martin boots, and safety pin decorated jackets to fill your wardrobe. Those who favor the gothic lolita style can find items such as lacy thigh high stockings and corset dresses for reasonable prices. If your’e all about being kawaii, be sure to peruse their selection of flowery, pastel options.
ACDC Rag also has plenty of items available that are a part of its own label or are in collaboration with another famous brand or musical artist. The latest collaboration to come to ACDC Rag is with the uber popular Japanese girl idol group, AKB48. In ACDC Rag stores, you can buy the clothing and accessories that the girls of AKB48 wore in some of their concerts or in some of their photo shoots. Alternatively, ACDC Rag has hooked up with the brand Segakawaii and have since come out with a line of clothing that is video game inspired. They have also partnered more recently with the character line Coji-Coji. This line features Coji-Coji’s two super adorable mascots splattered all over lolita style dresses, accessories, and a variety of other products.
All in all, if you want to experience another piece of the Harajuku fashion lifestyle then you need to head to ACDC Rag. At ACDC Rag you can find anything you need to make yourself over in true Harajuku style without spending a lot of money!
