A veteran of Fruits magazine, Rei Shito is a pioneer of the Harajuku street-style scene. Known for her unique ability to capture the unexpected, Rei's collection of street snaps offers a local girl's look into Tokyo's inimitable style--one that is honest, descriptive, and always super cool.
Unlike most street-fashion compendiums, entire chapters are tutorials on achieving your own signature style. Illustrated and with step-by-step instructions, Rei unlocks the secret to pairing bold graphics, patterns, and metallics with everyday staples to create ensembles that are at once fearless and effortless. Interview from fashion insiders including Chitose Abe, Motofumi "Poggy" Kogi, and Scott Schuman highlights the influence that Tokyo street style continues to have on fashion, while dozens of tips and tricks offer readers endless inspiration on how to master pattern, texture, and color to create the perfect outfit the Tokyo way. This collection of diverse, urban style inspirations is a necessity for any fashion lover's bookshelf.
