May I introduce: Hirari Ikeda

Model Interview

I have a few favorite instagram accounts that always give me inspiration and have a very different approach to photos. One of them being @ikedahirari (Hirari Ikeda) a Japanese Model working in Tokyo's greatest store DOG-harajuku. When I visited Japan last season I had to meet up with her to photograph her myself. She is so unique when it comes to use of make-up, hair and styling to distort the typical image people have, she almost looks like a beautiful alien at times.
So we strolled around Tokyo to shoot her in 5 different looks for MTVstyle. Check out the editorial "Little Miss Avatar" and find all the shots we took below. As well as an interview. I'm still flashed whenever I stumble across one of her photos, so much creativity in one person is seriously inspiring. Thank you babe and hope to see you again soon!

Where are you originally from and since when do you live in Tokyo?
Nagano in Japan, I moved here three years ago.

You change your look it feels like almost every day. How many hair styles did you have?
I don't really know but I did dye my hair in every colour except red in the past, and as for the hairstyles I have even tried everything from bold to super long hair with blades.  

How long do you usually stick to one look before changing it?
I get bored in about 2 weeks. If i could take a good photo then I change my style.  

You were in the most recent campaign by Diesel by Nicola Formichetti. How did that happen?
Nicola simply asked me. I met him when I was working at DOG.

You experience quite a bit with make up as well, what's the craziest you've ever done?
When I got my face, hair and body painted with acryl paintings.  

What's you favorite piece of clothing in your closet and what was the worst thing you ever wore (fashion wise)?
My favorite one is a bag with green fur and the worst thing would be useful items (like simple clothes in black).

What makes Tokyo such a great city to live in? Or is it at all?
It's interesting because many people have extreme hobbies and what they like, and they gather in a small groups. I think that makes Toyko so unique.
