Avril Lavigne in awe of Tokyo style

Avril Lavigne loves shopping in Tokyo as style there is "so crazy and out there".

The Canadian songstress is famed for her punky aesthetic, which she incorporates into her clothing line Abbey Dawn.

Avril likes taking inspiration from across the globe when she's designing and Japan's capital provides a wealth of ideas.

"Tokyo [is the best place to shop.] The style is so crazy and out there," she revealed in an interview with WWD.

Avril likes to incorporate her own influences into her Abbey Dawn range. The label's second shoe collection will launch this fall, with animal prints being a major design staple.

The 27-year-old beauty has explained the reason why she delved into footwear design.

"My personal style is very Abbey Dawn. It's rock 'n' roll, but still cute," she explained.

"That's why I wanted to start my own line. I could never find [footwear] that was a combination."

Despite being a fully-fledged fashionista these days, Avril hasn't lost her punky roots. The singer prefers to dress down on her days off.

"A hooded sweatshirt," she replied, when asked what she never leaves home without.

Avril has recently branched out in the fashion and beauty world and has signed a deal to create a limited edition collection for Sally Hansen. It includes 12 designs of nail polish strips which are inspired by Avril's signature quirky style. The star is thrilled to work with the beauty giant.

"This is pretty much the coolest thing, because I also do clothing - I love clothing, nails and fragrance, hair, make-up, all that stuff," she previously explained.
