Japan's Harajuku girls and Ethiopia's Omo tribe united by their love of hairclips
When Dolce & Gabanna sent models sporting piles of colourful hair accessories down the catwalk during their S/S15 show, the fashion world swooned in delight.
But the designers' source of inspiration for the look is an unlikely one - the colourful Bana people of Ethiopia's Omo Valley, who like nothing better than intricate piles of brightly coloured hair clips.
And they aren't the only ones who love a good hair accessory. Ever the early adopters, Japan's Kawaii girls have enthusiastically embraced the look, although their colour of choice is pink in all its shades.
In Japan, pink is most popular, whether bright fuchsia or delicate powder shades - all perfectly in keeping with the Kawaii 'Sweet Lolita' sub-set which sees women pile on as many frills, bows and ruffles as they can.
Clips are worn dotted across fringes, combined with girly bunches or worn clipped on to candy-striped headbands. Floral pattern and Hello Kitty designs are also loved.
The creative use of accessories will come as no surprise to anyone who has followed Japan's adventures in fashion, with the country producing a fascinating range of style tribes.
Among the most creative of all is the hair clips' most devoted group of admirers, the Kawaii style tribe which sees girls - and some boys - dressing to show off their individuality with takes on the look ranging from the Lolita (sweet and girly) to Gotchi (Gothic).
The antithesis of fake-tanned hair-extensioned TOWIE chic, Kawaii girls like pink, kitsch, tutus, delicate dabs of glitter, enormous false lashes, ultra pale skin - and plenty of hair clips.
The most common Kawaii style is named the 'classic Lolita', which despite referencing the Nabokov novel in the name, has nothing to do with looking sexy and everything to do with achieving a look that is as cute, girlish and pretty as possible.
Based on frilled and furbelowed Victorian styles combined with a hint of goth, girls hope to achieve a porcelain-doll look using lashings of lace, ribbon, bows, ruffles, bloomers, aprons, and ruffled petticoats.
Then there's the 'Sweet Lolita' look. Featuring even more ribbons, bows, and lace, than the 'Classic Lolita', it leaves out the gothic elements in favour of pastels.
