Alba Rosa coats. One of the most sought after Gyaru brand items in existence. But any Gyaru will tell you that the prices for them secondhand are ridiculous and most of us save up a while before attempting to buy one in good condition. It’s almost like a rite of passage to own one of these. You may not even really dress in Manba, Banba or even Ganguro, but it’s no pro!
It was recently announced that the shop “High and Seek” will do a collab to re-release these famous coats in the「ALBA ROSA HERITAGE COLLECTION」. They will be available in the original black and white combo as well as brown and white. But they will come with a hefty price tag at 74,000円 (which is just under 700USD!). They will be super limited edition with very few in each colorway.
The original coats were sold by the brand from 1993 to 2005 in its trademark logo with a hibiscus flower. They were also made from a blanket-like material. The new versions will be made of a lighter wool and over-sized.
