Last month I introduced Japanese artist and illustrator Machico when she and her friend gm held an exposition at Design Festa Gallery in Tokyo’s Harajuku.

Quite a few people fell in love with Machico’s original tights and asked me if they could buy them online. The answer was “no” at the time. So I met with Machico and we decided to create this special page on JAPANESE STREETS to allow you to purchase Machico’s super cute tights.

We spent half a day shooting the tights with one of her friends as the leg model at locations near the JAPANESE STREETS office.

Machico is offering two designs:

POP GIRLS

The Pop Girls design features girls with brightly colored hairstyles and hearts with messages like Too Hot, Lub Bug and Whiz Kid on a white background.
