Laforet Harajuku is a landmark department store cum museum in Tokyo's Harajuku district: a beacon of youth fashion. Laforet also has a museum in Tokyo's Roppongi district.
The store is located very near the Jingu-mae intersection with Omotesando Street, and is distinctive for the constant changes it undergoes in outward appearance.
Last week was Laforet's Grand Bazaar, a summer sale that the store is famous for. However, this year the Grand Bazaar was seriously pumped up with a generous few extra pounds per cubic inch of hot sex appeal.
Huge red balloons in place of massive breasts bulged in way-more-than-lifesize glamor over the whole Jingu-mae area, perhaps symbolizing not only the bounty to be had at the Bazaar, but the mortal danger of your sweetest dreams disappearing with a bang in hot summer air if you didn't get your ass down there fast.
