Style from Tokyo.

Filed under: Uncategorized — blindcopy @ 5:59 pm

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!

  1. she is adorably fashionable! i love the black dress w/ tri-color wedge ankle boots, lace dress w/ sneakers, and black pants with stud belt. i’ve never been to japan (not yet anyway) but what i’ve seen in photos, your assessment about japanese fashion lovers seems accurate….which i find exciting, as it makes me want to go people-watching in tokyo!

  2. She is cool – and weird – and frightingly thin (which probably makes for the wrinkly look). You know who’s also quite obsessed with her? Maya from Turned Out (, – that’s her, isn’t it?) Rei will definitely go on my blogging list!

  3. @ Style Odyssey: you should really visit tokyo! it’s beyond words!
    @ Sabine: oh yes, that’s her – oh, and i love both of her looks, but she is frightingly thin.

  5. Never heard of her before, but now I do.
    I adore the fact that she loves wearing ballerinas.
    her style is singular and stylish, I would not say she’s ‘fashionable’, though.
    And in my book that is a Good thing. She might be just a tad too thin.
    Thank you for the introduction – have a nice and fun weekend;-)

  6. I think Japan is great, fashion and ahem tv drama wise. I’ve became addicted to this whole japanese culture.

    I really like Rei’s blog (just found it a few days ago).

  7. You know the most interesting thing when you meet her is that she is so much taller than she looks, it’s really surprising. And apart from the look, she’s just the most wonderful person to talk to – always smiling as well.
    It’s nice to see a collection of photos of her together.

  9. I really like her style; it’s fun, creative and tabi shoes are always awesome. You’re right about her looking young and old at the same time, I wonder what her actual age is.
    I read ‘Style from Tokyo’ every once in awhile and I’ve seen pictures of her on a few blogs but somehow never knew that ‘Style from Tokyo’ was her blog!
