Just outside the Meiji-jingumae Station on the outskirts of Harajuku’s Takeshita-dori and at the end of Omotesando’s main shopping street lies the hipster paradise of Lazy Hazy Planet (or L.H.P. as it’s known by most experienced Harajuku shoppers). In this 1-story shop resting in the shadows of the neighboring skyscrapers of H&M and Forever 21, you’ll be able to find items you never expected to find outside the most savvy fashion blogs and websites. If you need something uber fresh and in the now to add to your wardrobe, then Lazy Hazy Planet should absolutely be your first stop.
Lazy Hazy Planet has several stores around the Tokyo area (with Omotesando being the flagship location). It is a store ahead of its time and has its thumb on the pulse of the latest Japanese men’s and women’s street and Internet fashion trends. The philosophy of the store is to “support all the designers” so as not to close any channels or cross out any possibility of being able to adapt to current trends. The amount of brands that they regularly host is astounding and makes for an eye popping and pleasing array of choices as well as a easy sense of fluidity.
It seems that these days fashion outlets and brands have conditioned us to dress all in their label, without any room for experimentation. But not at Lazy Hazy Planet. If you want to be a glittery pop star with leather accents from a French designer label? Go for it. Do you want to be a punk prince with a bandana around your neck and an athletic jersey thrown in? Done. Lazy Hazy Planet encourages you to explore all the labels, choices, and combinations that are out there on the market. The list of designers favored by Lazy Hazy Planet is extensive, with names including Levi’s, Marc Jacobs, Lux, Diamond Dogs, and many many more.
