Summer has arrived. Rei Shito bumps into a favourite photography subject of hers, who’s channeling chill summer vibes in a crisp white ensemble.
Rei says: “This is Takuma Iwasaki, an up-and-coming Japanese model based in Tokyo. I happened to catch him in front of Omotesando Hills. His style is always sophisticated so I can’t stop photographing him whenever I see him.
“I love this all-white outfit with the Hermès backpack. It’s so relaxed and classic that I almost feel like I’m vacationing on a Mediterranean island! I really like this elegant mix of colours: white, beige, and Hermès orange. The black of his hair and shoes offers a nice contrast to these pale colours.”
