Helsinki street style

Hel Looks. Street fashion from Helsinki, Finland. You're probably familiar with Japanese street style, and how they're dressing in Shibuya, but what are things like on the other side of the world? Some Hel fashions look familiar. Very familiar. Some recall the 'world between the wars'. Shemagh are popular, although not for the head. Sometimes just...eek! If Death Metal marries Neko Musume, in which religion will the kittens children be raised? Of course this is Helsinki: "When I dress up the most important thing is not to be cold!"

SAN

kasa
meaning: dish, bowl, plate

日傘 == higasa == (noun) sunshade, parasol
雨傘 == amagasa == (noun) umbrella


Originally a pictograph of an umbrella. Henshall suggests taking the top part as a 'cover', the inner radicals as four 'persons' (人), and 'ten' (十), and as a mnemonic: 'Umbrella covers fourteen persons!'
