I’ve made no secret of my love and fascination with Chicano culture in Japan. I am obsessed with how urban Chicano visual aesthetics and slang have been interpreted through a uniquely Japanese lens. I’ve written before about Japanese takes on Cholo fashion and I’m back with a themed look at how the Virgin of Guadalupe has been used in said fashion.
Finding these clothes took no special Japanese language skills or inside cultural information, I simply looked up Japanese online stores (primarily Rakuten) and performed searches on them for the word Guadalupe. Below are some of my favorite findings. Clicking on the images will take you to their sale listing if you actually want to purchase what you see. Happy shopping!
Finally, in the Chicano spirit, I’ll leave you with this bonus: A Chicano Spirits shirt. Enjoy!

Exista reguli. Legi, morala. Iar daca nu exista lupt sa pun problema in fata comunitatii pentru a creea regulile care nu exista. Probabil altii ar fi nemultumiti daca cineva ar asculta la maxim AC/DC in locuri publice.Am sa fac din nou referire la Declaratia Universala a Drepturilor Omului care se refera si la aceasta problema cand spune ca nici un drept nu poate fi folosit pentru a limita drepturile celtllaroi.In general nu este nevoie ca de fiecare data sa reinventam roata si focul. Pentru aceasta exista procesul de educatie.
