I remember when I was younger. When I would troll eBay for second hand Demonia’s and Gallery Serpentine corsets. The first think I’d always find when I typed “Goth Shoes” or “Goth Clothes” into the search bar was Punk Rave clothes.
Punk Rave has always been a brand that I’ve associated with Visual Kei clothing, costume type Japanese street wear. The kind of brand teenagers wear to anime conventions. (Don’t get me wrong, I go to anime conventions – they’re a great place to find small brands!) But over the years Punk Rave have come a long-long way!
Just check out the clothes above. They do have some costume style clothes – but that can be good for some intense Goths in hot weather – but they also have some nice toned down street wear for alternative people like me. My favourite pair of sensible pants (i.e. not short-shorts or ripped to the nines) are from them!
Have you ever worn Punk Rave? I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on more of it!
