Cyberpunk Kimono Fashion Hits the Streets of Akihabara, Complete with Neon Sign Obi – Design You Trust

Cyberpunk Kimono Fashion Hits the Streets of Akihabara, Complete with Neon Sign Obi

Some of the best places in Tokyo to get that cyberpunk feel are Shinjuku and Akihabara, where walls of lights and multi-storey tech stores vie for your attention. The only thing missing from the landscape is people dressed in futuristic gear, but one cyber head is here to help with that, creating a new look that fits in with the lights of the city, in the form of a “backpack” containing a neon sign.

Its designer, Tanago, who proudly calls herself a “Cyber Mum,” shared photos of the stunning creation online, saying she’s become “the first person to carry a real neon tube on their back“.

There are so many neat details to this look, starting with the neon tubing itself, which has been crafted to read “電脳” (“denno“). Made up of two kanji – the first one represents “lightning bolt” and the second represents “brain” — denno can be read as “cyberbrain“, and is the name given to cyberbrains seen in the Ghost in the Shell series.

Tanago created a variety of design options before settling on the final look seen above.

Flowers with an oval shape…

…flowers with bars…

…and flowers with Mt Fuji and the rising sun.

So next time you’re out and about in Tokyo, be sure to keep an eye out for Tanago lighting up the streets with her head-turning cyberpunk fashion.
