Some of you have seen this dear little smiling face through many fashion blogs. She’s Rei Shito, a fashion street photographer, based in Tokyo, known by many as the nicest it-girl in the world, because besides being a celebrity she is very humble and discrete. 

In almost all her interviews, Rei Shito stresses her unconditional love for photographing people, whether adults or children. But she self is so stylish and attractive that she is portrayed by the biggest street style blogs, as The Sartorialist and Garance Doré.

I want be like her 🙂

Favorite street-style muse… 
Vika [Gazinskaya], my favorite Russian designer and Phil [Oh], the stylish photographer.

Item I can’t resist shooting… 
Recently I can’t stop focusing on unique nails.

Shoe I like to wear while shooting…
Any shoe without heels.

Print that always catches my eye…
Pattern-on-pattern mixing, like border and check, dot and leopard.

Camera of choice… 
Fujifilm X-E2 and Olympus OM-D.

Favorite location to shoot…  Harajuku, Tokyo!

How street style differs in different cities…
In NYC, it’s all about trends and comfort — pieces that are good for daily life. In London, style is powerful, created by people on the street rather than designers. In Paris, people are elegant and well put-together. And in Tokyo, I can find style made by street kids — it’s sometimes mixed with Japanese new culture like anime, akiba-idol and so on. It’s so unique.

Favorite photography book… Scott Schuman’s book, The Sartorialist.

Most scenic spot in Tokyo…
Tokyo City View at the top of Roppongi Hills. You can find everything in Tokyo when you are there. If it’s nice and sunny, you can see Mount Fuji.

One thing you can get in Tokyo that you can’t get anywhere else…
Disco — the most artistic nail salon in the world! It’s a Tokyo original.
