Where Tokyo Goes to Shop

Tokyo’s hottest new shop is called Kitson, which just so happens to hail from my hometown of Los Angeles.


It’s a place where young Hollywood celebrities browse for colorful bangles and tattoo-laden sweatshirts. The store is filled to the rim with name-brand couture, accessories, makeup, stationery goods, shoes, purses — you name it — at a cost that’ll definitely break the piggy bank. That is, unless you’re a celeb, cause then they’ll simply hand you the stuff for free.


Back a couple years ago, paparazzi swarmed the place day and night, waiting for that money-shot of celebrities being everyday people. When Halle Barry was spotted with a cool purse embroidered with big lettering from Kitson, it started a hot new trend. Ever since, Kitson owners have been smart to line themselves with celeb supporters.


And now Kitson is in Tokyo –at Lumine in Shinjuku and Harajuku’s La Foret — with a whole lot of fanfare from young women just happy to tote around a Kitson shopping bag for the sake of toting around a Kitson shopping bag (~$100). It’s a match made in heaven; both Kitson and Tokyo worship their young female celebrities and they’re not shy to make a quick buck off them either.

Kitson couture is really cute, but personally it’s way, way beyond my price range. I’m perfectly happy with shopping at H&M, Forever 21 and Uniqlo.With Kitson, I’ll admire them from afar. =)
