Growing up in California and having lived in LA for a couple of years during university, it’s hard for me to let go of that way of thinking and I think it shows in my personal style. After moving to Tokyo 5 years ago, I’ve also acquired a lot of the Tokyo style that’s trending or that I find fits my style, and it’s so fun to mix the two to create an “LA meets Tokyo” look. As a blogger, I love representing brands that I feel have a strong and unique identity, and UNTITLED CLUB from Japan truly reflects just that.

カリフォルニアで生まれ育ち、大学生の頃数年ロサンゼルスに住んでいたこともあるので、「LA」のライフスタイルが今でも身に付いていて、パーソナルスタイルにも反映されてると思います。5年前に日本に来て以来、東京の最新のトレンドやファッションをコーディネートに取り入れてみたりし始めたので、二つをミックスした「LA meets Tokyo」ルックを考えるのが楽しいです。ブロガーとして私はユニークでアイデンティティの強いブランドのお洋服を着るのが好きで、日本発のUNTITLED CLUBはその内の一つに当てはまります。

UNTITLED CLUB is a Japanese street wear label that launched last year in 2016, incorporating the 90s youth culture & subcultures in its designs. I’ve introduced this T-shirt several times on my blog, and that’s where I became really hooked on street wear and wearing oversized clothing. And this hoodie is no different – I purposely ordered the XXL so I can wear it as a dress with OTK boots, precisely as I did in the photos. The reason why I say this style is “LA meets Tokyo” is because I feel like OTK boots are totally LA style, and of course, the always amazing zeroUV, based in Huntington Beach, provides the perfect matching eyewear. And I couldn’t imagine not wearing yellow on yellow for the ultimate showstopper look because the way I think of it is, a yellow signal light is much more interesting than the simple “stop” or “go” of the red or green. That’s just me, though.

UNTITLED CLUBは2016年にローンチしたストリートウェアのレーベルで、90年代のユースカルチャーやサブカルチャーをデザインに取り入れています。このTシャツを何回かブログで紹介していますが、これをきっかけにラフなストリートウェアやオーバーサイズの服に目覚めました。この着用しているフードもそのひとつです。膝上ブーツなどと合わせられるように、わざとXXLを購入しました。このスタイリングがなぜ「LA meets Tokyo」なのかというと、膝上ブーツはロスでかなり流行っているし、いつも愛用しているサングラスブランドのzeroUVもカルフォルニア発だからです。ダブル黄色という発想も目立ってて良いかなと思いました。だって、分かりやすい赤や青信号より、ちょっと曖昧な黄色の方が面白いと思わない?それとも私だけかしら。

This is seriously such a killer look! I love the XXL bright hoodie as a dress and these denim OTB are so “LA!” You really achieved meshing the streetstyle looks of both Toyko and LA with this outfit. You pull off the colored frames so well too and I am a huge fan of ZeroUV shades for the trendy styles and affordable pricing. Fantastic style! xoxo, Christine

Ok those boots are fierce and you are totally pulling them off. I would have no idea how to pair them, except with maybe a button down white shirt dress. Or something simple. But you took it to another level with a bold yellow sweatshirt and red cap. Great style choices!

I’ve never been to L.A. or Tokyo, but if I were to go, I’d definitely look to this post for inspiration. I’m a fan of the entire ensemble, from the oversized hoodie dress to the over the knee boots. But then again, I’ve always been a fan of whatever you put together. This is no different 🙂

Not everyone can wear an oversized sweater and wear OTKs with them and STILL look this glam!! Saw this on your insta and I have to say, it’s one of my favorite looks from you! So cool, so chic, so edgy! And what a great fashion brand! Definitely checking out their wide array of Japanese streetwear attire. Thanks for recommending this place! xo~ Lena

Dear Samantha, sometimes I feel like we were twins separated at birth. I always LOVE what you’re wearing and apart from me not wearing heels I could definitely twin this look. I adore the OTK denim boots and not to mention the Untitled Club clothing that brings back so many memories from the 90s. You are the perfect mix of LA and Tokyo and hence my role model in fashion!
