Not to be confused with the soshokukei (herbivore) male trend– an anti-salary man, new generation of non-aggressive and vain young men– the Mainichi newspaper introduces a new type of soshoku (same sound, different kanji).
The new soshoku are “decorative” males. My favorite kind. They enjoy unisex and ladies’ clothes (but are not cross-dressing), and are partial to a super slim silhouette that is impossible for their oji-san admirers to imitate. I love the photos that represent the new look, and have posted them above.
BTW, I am lurking and shooting my own fashion observations, and as fanservice to my readers I’ll post them soon.
