A new guide to Tokyo street style, documenting looks from Japan and beyond, featuring endless inspiration, tips, and tricks to put together that killer look.
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.

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.

"This fall, a new book spotlights a fashion scene only Tokyo could conjure...Mixed materials, wacky color combinations and precise selections of the smallest details - these are just a few of the sartorial tropes that vivify Tokyo's street fashion scene, which, according to Japanese journalist and photographer Rei Shito, is the best in the world...Her new book, Style on the Street: From Tokyo and Beyond, examines that fashion ecosystem in all its glory." —AMERICAN WAY
