Sakurai Rocks!

Atsushi Sakurai

Oftentimes it's the performing artists the ones called to spice up male clothing and to introduce creative changes and mentality shifts. From Boy George's trademark makeup and David Bowie's dresses to Bill Kaulitz's high heels and Prince Poppycock cutting back to the XVIII century.  

Atsushi Sakurai, vocalist of the Japanese band BUCK-TICK is yet another example of that ingeniousness and unprejudiced attitude. 

In fact, this band, together with X Japan are considered to be the founders of that extremely advanced movement known as Visual kei, a trend among Japanese musicians characterized by the use of make-up, elaborate hair styles, flamboyant costumes, and quite androgynous looks.
