While eyes turn to the four fashion week capitals for the best “in crowd” street style, Asia has proved to be the next frontier in really real IRL dress up.

If we were to name which city in the east has the best street style, Seoul and Tokyo are neck and neck. And with this latest batch snapped by photographers Ania Boniecka and Tyler Stalman, we’re no closer to deciding which stylish city does it best. You can’t deny our love for all things Korea (ahem, matching couples!), but if we were to judge based on zaniness, we’ve got to hand it to the Japanese. Bart Simpson and Disney motifs still hold strong, but hats seem to be the ultimate staple to completing an outfit, judging from this collection of style snaps. Walking and posing (with obligatory peace signs, of course) in the heart of Tokyo’s most stylish district, Harajuku, you can surely find a generation of the hip and young dressed in everything from kawaii Lolita-styled dresses to goth-like ensembles to just plain chic. To be honest, we don’t think anyone can pull off quirky, punk and cute as effortless as them. Find it hard to believe? Here are 61 photos to prove it.
