*Dolly Kei (Wiki) is a style/subculture based on Japan’s distorted view of the Middle Ages and European fairy tales, especially the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen. It includes a lot of vintage-style clothing and sometimes has religious symbols. Grimoire is a store in Japan that has been described as ‘the pioneering store behind the Dolly-kei fashion scene’.
