At the latest when The Sartorialist published some shots of her, Rei Shito has caused quite a stir within the streetstyle blogger scene. I’m really fascinated by her style I have to admit, even though almost every picture of her makes me go “nooo” (an uncertain “no” with a big “?”) at first. She is way too thin, she looks very young and strangely old at the same time, she wears Maison Martin Margiela’s Tabi Ballerinas (in gold), she is a geek but in a way very cool, even sexy. Her style is very Japanese (I know she is Japanese, but you know what I mean, don’t you?), but while many Japanese fashion lovers (it was really hard to avoid ‘fashionistas’ here, but I’ve made it, yet ‘fashion lovers” sounds a bit corny :)) tend to go either extremely avant-garde or extremely school-/little-girl, Rei Shito manages to look different in almost every pic taken of her. Oh, I almost forgot to mention that she is an extremely successful streetstyle blogger as well: Style from Tokyo is her blog – but in my opinion she herself is the best style ambassador Tokyo could have. Go Rei! I love your style!
