Nothing lasts forever – and that includes the casual-everything trend. Street style photographer Rei Shito has spotted more and more fashion-forward women clacking around the pavements of Tokyo in high heels, a sight she interprets as the beginning of a new moment on the city’s style scene. 

Rei says: “This is Miho Enomoto, the director of labels Miosmokey and Livingtone – and one of Tokyo’s most stylish fashionistas. We recently had tea in Omotesando, chatted and took some pictures.

“The jacket and blouse she’s wearing are from Miosmokey, the men’s trousers are from Dries Van Noten, and her heels are Manolo Blahnik. I really like her sense of colour, and the way she harmonises the bold tones as well as balances the voluminous shapes with more structured pieces.

“Her outfit is also a good example of the current fashion moment in Tokyo, where women have recently shifted their footwear habits and traded casual sneakers for heels. After the dominance of laid-back looks and loungewear over the past year and a half, I think people have had enough of wearing relaxed clothing lately. Now it’s all about putting more thought into our outfits, and having more fun with fashion.”
