Amid the flood of exciting new trends at Paris Fashion Week, street style photographer Rei Shito found inspiration among the throwback styles of the modish crowds – and their accessories, in particular.

Rei says: “I had the pleasure of photographing this fashionista at the Louis Vuitton show in Paris in March.

“With the Y2K trend boom, there were many people – especially Gen Zers – sporting shirts and ties like hers, both men and women! Some wore their ties tightly knotted, like she’s styled hers here, while others left the first button undone and wore it loosely. It’s been a while since ties have appeared on the scene as a trend item, so it’s refreshing to see.

“The open-fingered gloves are a fun addition as well. Though there weren’t as many sporting this accessory as were wearing the tie trend, I did see a few using gloves as a fashion statement. I also like how this open-finger version provides a mix-and-match styling finish, whereas full gloves would have had a more formal effect.

“Ties and gloves are small items, but they can really elevate a look. Fashion is truly in the details!”
