Little Red Riding Hood
After all, if we’re talking classical fairytales then of course we’re not just talking Disney but also the Brothers Grimm! And of the plethora of brilliantly dark and haunting tales that there are, one the most well-known (besides the ones that were remade by Disney)
Despite the hundreds of tales told by the Grimm brothers, most are fairly unknown within Japan, except of course for the Disney remakes which include Snow White and Rapunzel etc, one of the most universally recognized tales is the emblematic “Little Red Riding Hood”!
Little Red Riding Hood Coat One-Piece
The first item to be introduced within the “Little Red” range is the beautiful BTSSB (Baby The Stars Shine Bright) dress. This fabulous piece needs absolutely no description for so perfect is the entire outfit that it seems as if the original illustrated text has personified itself and walked straight of the pages! For more close-up photos from different angles, please be sure to check out the official link listed above!
“Little Red Hood Tartan Lace Up” One-Piece
The second “Little Red” item to be featured is this wonderful dress from Emily Temple Cute. With the majority being a timelessly classic gingham check upper it is stylishly highlighted by the super cute and super delicious looking picnic basket below, which was the reason why “Red” went to grandma’s house in the first place. Available in either red or green, this lace trimmed and ribboned frock has an air of playfulness to it that may make you want to joyfully skip all the way to your next tea party!
Fans of England’s Beatrix Potter’s, “The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends” will love our final introduction here! This is actually a second stage re-release item, as the original piece was so immensely popular and sold out so quickly that due to popular demand, it is back again for another round!!
This adorable jumper skirt elegantly expresses the wonderful “World of Peter Rabbit and Friends”. Featured within the delightful designs is of course the much loved Peter Rabbit himself yet also many other famous characters on both the hem and around the neckline. The cute characters around the neckline are left open and creates a sweet atmosphere that they are free to play and have fun, whilst the lower motifs are framed with subtle descriptions of the characters and the tale from which they are most known for, creating a more conservative tone which seems to balance out the entire piece and end with a truly classical feel!
Since the Peter Rabbit theme is so rarely used within Japanese designed Lolita fashion this wonderful piece has the air of a somewhat exclusive premier item! Available in three different color schemes along with the animal theme motifs, this wonderful one-piece is perfectly suited for any and all spring and summer functions! ♡

We hope you enjoyed the variety of brands introduced rather than us simply sticking to one brand. … Yet, to be honest, isn’t that actually what the true beauty and sincere essence of Lolita fashion is??
