New on the site: PUTUMAYO items complete!

We've completed posting items from our latest PUTUMAYO shipment to our web site.  This shipment included the quick restock of a lot of our most popular items from last month's shipment, plus many new items too!

Chiffon Skirt (White/Gold) - $149.00

This two-piece skirt includes three total layers, with a top skirt featuring a layer of sheer chiffon over a layer of cotton. The cotton layer features a print with butterflies and ribbons, which shows through the top chiffon layer. The result is a very subtle skirt that's light in appearance, but still with a distinctive print - especially when work with multiple petticoats, or while moving around (at which time the chiffon will be pressed closer to the cotton layer and the print).


Trump Frill One-Piece (multiple colors) - $175.00

This dress has a baby doll style look with classic and feminine frills. The bottom of the dress has tiered ruffles which feature a trump print design! In the design the letters "P" "T" "M" "Y" repeat, standing for PUTUMAYO.

The dress has versatile fit with shirring all along the back and elastic around the arm holes and shoulders. There is also a detachable waist tie to tie down for smaller sizes.


Ribbon Sailor T-Shirt (four colors) - $85.00

This cutsew is sailor themed with a cute sailor collar that has a piano print on the back and is tied with a detachable ribbon. It's a soft stretchy cotton with puff sleeves, perfect for the spring season! The front also has a cat crest design. The sides have small slits so that you can easily coordinate with a fluffy skirt!


More products are below!

Cat Shoulder Belt Sweater (2 colors) - $95.00

This loose knit sweater features a cute cat print design! Its wide boat neckline is perfect for layering and wearing an off shoulder look. The shoulder belts are also adjustable.


Stripe Vest Bustle One-Piece (3 colors) - $175.00

This dress is a halter vest style that is very popular in Japan right now. The lapels contrast the striped patterned fabric by being just a solid black. The top is double breasted with working buttons. The side on the front of the skirt shows off a crest crown print in classic Putumayo style. The top striped skirt layer can be tied up in the back to add a cascading bustle style!


Cross Bag (2 colors) - $129.00

This bag can be worn 3 ways: as a handbag, shoulder bag, and a back pack! It is made out of a durable synthetic leather and is decorated with a delicate cross and thorn print.


Chandelier Ribbon Tie - $39.00

This bow tie is elegant and cute with a striped fabric and a chandelier design. There is also a cross charm that dangles down from the bow. The band of the bow tie clips on and off and is adjustable.


Emblem Brooch (2 colors) - $20.00

This brooch has a lion emblem design and a dangling ribbon. It has a studious formal look, but can also be worn casually too!


Cat Print Shoulder Belt One-piece (4 colors) - $125.00 (restock)

This cute, casual and punky one-piece features a large cat print set against a polka dot design. The shoulder straps are adjustable via a buckle, allowing you to wear the dress bare shoulder if you like. The skirt portion features a soft sheer tulle, colored to match the same tulle material on the long sleeves.


Cat Ribbon Frill Dress (black/red only) - $165.00 (restock)

This high-waisted dress features a layered design with a contrasting layer of printed fabric on top of a basic check design. On one side of the dress is a cute cat print. The front of the dress features a large bow and the hem is made up of the same color fabric as the side layers.


Orb Watch Necklace - $30.00 (new color!)

A new color of this unique watch, with a look similar to copper! Also still available in antique silver.


Stripe Chandelier Necktie (3 colors) - $30.00 (restock)

These are real neckties - not clip-ons - and can be worn the standard way or tied into a bow for added cuteness. This tie features Putumayo's chandelier print running down the length of the front of the tie, over a diagonally striped background.


Mirror shirt w/ Ribbon Collar (4 colors) - $80.00 (restock)

Two cats play in front of a mirror in the print on this long-sleeve cutsew that's more versatile than it may initially appear. The collar is completely optional, and whether or not it's used can completely change the atmosphere from formal to casual. Both the cuffs and hem of this cutsew are decorated with frills for further cuteness.


Cat Ribbon Parka (3 colors) - $109.00 (restock)

A large print of two cats jumping out of a box adorns the front left breast of this parka, while an even larger print of what appears to be the same scene just a moment or two later covers the entire back. The front pockets are topped off by cute bows, and the hood is lined with material that matches said bows, as are the cuffs. The cuffs are further decorated with lace. The hem of the parka is ruffled. A two-way zipper is provided, for easier wearing with poofy skirts or dresses.


Wild Rose Tote Bag - $85.00 (new color!)

This tote bag from Putumayo features a print of wild roses and butterflies. A butterfly charm also hangs from the strap. Cute pom-poms decorate the top of the bag. The inside of the bag has several pockets for storage, plus a cavernous main pocket in which you can carry books or other large items. Made of a durable laminated canvas, this bag will last a long time.



A quick note on the Japan earthquake

Many of the people who have visited us over the past couple days have either expressed concern over the events taking place in Japan, or they've asked us when we expect our future shipments in (especially from Baby, the Stars Shine Bright).  So while we've talked about the earthquake on our Facebook and Twitter previously, we just want to post a short update here.

First, many businesses in Japan remain closed due to rolling blackouts, fuel shortages and road and rail disruptions. Many of our brands have posted updates to their web sites to let everyone know they are okay, but only a few of them are attempting to operate as usual.  Osaka was not affected by the earthquake in a major way, but Tokyo was, with all transportation cut off, lost power, and food and fuel deliveries disrupted.  Many of our brands also have stores in the Sendai area, and as you can imagine, they are now dealing with the cleanup there.  (As far as we've heard, all of their employees are okay.)

It is possible and even likely that any future shipments we were expecting will be delayed a bit by this disaster.  We do have some great new stuff from both Atelier-Pierrot and Putumayo, some of which we're going to talk about in a post following this one.  But if you're waiting for Baby, the Stars Shine Bright or Alice and the Pirates, the wait may be a little bit longer.  Please be patient, and check out our other items in the meantime.

Incidentally, you may notice the Global Giving box to the right, where you can help the victims of this disaster.  Tokyo Rebel has already made two donations, and additionally we're going to be donating 10% of this month's profits.  We urge you to do what you can too.

A new shipment from PUTUMAYO!

Our recent shipment sold so well that we've quickly ordered and received another new shipment from PUTUMAYO!

This shipment contains both new items, like the vest-style Stripe Bustle One-piece above, as well as restocks of some of our most popular items from the previous shipment, including the Cat Print Shoulder Belt One-piece (all colors), Cat Ribbon Parka, Mirror Shirt w/ Ribbon Collar, Wild Rose Tote (navy only), Stripe Necktie (two colors), Cat Window Socks, and more.

These restocked items are already on our web site for your ordering pleasure.  We're working to add the new items to our site right now.  So watch our site later tonight if you want to be the first in line - we'll also post another blog post once we're done.

Oh, and we'll finally have a new video soon showing off both our Atelier-Pierrot and Putumayo shipments!

Now available on the web site: Atelier-Pierrot & Victorian maiden!

As promised, all of our latest Atelier-Pierrot items are now up on the site, ready for ordering.  Also included is one Victorian maiden dress from our last shipment that we'd bet most of you didn't even know we had!  Here's a roundup:

Classical Doll Dress (Rose) by Victorian maiden - $369.00

Decorated with layers of frills, braid, original lace and a standout contrasting yoke, this dress provides an elegant but splashy Victorian look. The neck and waist ribbons are both removable for easy coordination. Victorian maiden's attention to detail even extends to the lace and braid, which are color-matched depending on the color of the dress.


Bustle Corset One-piece (navy blue) by Atelier Pierrot - $319.00 (restock)

Some of our most popular items, the Atelier-Pierrot bustle corset one-piece is a must-have for any gothic Lolita. This strapless, bare-shoulder dress can be worn with or without a blouse, bolero or other top garment. In the hot summer, it can be worn by itself. The dress itself is polyester with an attached chiffon underskirt – very light and cool as well, despite its heavy gothic appearance.


Bustle Corset One-piece (red/pink) by Atelier Pierrot - $319.00

Same description as the navy version above!


Original Jumper Skirt by Atelier Pierrot - $245.00

This extremely limited dress was sent to us as a special surprise! There are at most two of these dresses in existence - our dress, and one at the Atelier-Pierrot Osaka store (though they may be the same dress!). Atelier-Pierrot themselves call this a "one-off", so it is a very exclusive dress in any case. It has no name or product number - as you can see in the picture of the tag, it is simply labeled "Original OP (1 of a kind)" in Japanese.


Long Corset One-piece by Atelier Pierrot - $329.00

This dress features a multi-layered split front and a long back that can either be worn in a bustle or left to hang. On most women, it will hang nearly to the floor, but depending on your size, it might actually touch the floor. The rear bustle is in three parts, so you can do just the sides, just the middle, or the entire back depending on the look you're going for. The shoulder straps are removable via buttons.


Bustle Vest Style One-piece (navy) by Atelier Pierrot $275.00

Vest style dresses are very popular in Japan right now, and Atelier-Pierrot has combined that style with their own most popular dress style: the bustle one-piece. The result is this stunning combination of modern and traditional design, which Atelier-Pierrot offers in a regimental stripe pattern. Like the corset version of the bustle dress, this dress features both a front and back bustle - we're showing the front both up and down in our photos so you can see both looks, but the back pulls up as well.


Bustle Gilet One-piece (mint) by Atelier Pierrot - $299.00

This dress gives the appearance of at least two separate pieces, but it is a one-piece dress for your convenience! The top gives the appearance of a gilet or vest on top of a puff-sleeve dress made from a springtime floral print. The skirt portion also appears to be more than one piece, but it is simply multiple layers, with a cotton fabric layer over white chiffon.


Petticoat (Type I or II) by Atelier Pierrot - $50.00 or $79.00 (restock)

A petticoat forms the base of the Lolita silhouette, and these stiff tulle petticoats provide an excellent value in a name-brand petticoat. The Type II petticoats just have more tulle and therefore provide more stiffness and poof than the more casual Type I. Available in either black or white.

New Atelier-Pierrot items including an exclusive dress!

Today we received our promised Atelier-Pierrot shipment, along with a special surprise!

Atelier-Pierrot sent us this extremely limited dress.  This is a very light and somewhat sheer multi-layered dress in the "destroyed" gothic style - the material is intentionally frayed and even burned, but not so much that it overwhelms the silhouette of the dress, which is still well-defined. This dress will be marked $245.

We've also restocked the Bustle Corset one-piece dresses in navy blue, and we've stocked the red version of this same dress with pink/purple chiffon - that's a combination they've never done before. (This is currently available on our page for the red version of this dress, but this color combo is unique enough that we'll give it its own page once we have more photos.) Also available again is the Long Corset One-piece - we had this once before and even took photos of it, but it sold out just before being posted to our web site. So now you've got another chance.

Also back in stock are the type II petticoats, and type I petticoats in black! (White was available previously, and still is - so we have all colors and types back in at the moment.)

We have a few new dresses as well, including the Bustle Gillet One-piece as seen here and the Bustle Vest-style Dress in navy regimental stripe as seen here. Neither of these dresses are available through Atelier-Pierrot's main web site - they are only sold in their stores in Japan.

All of these items are available in our store right now, and we'll be taking photos of the new ones tonight for posting to our web site by tomorrow.

Baby, the Stars Shine Bright reservations!

There's one more thing we haven't told you yet, and we think you're going to like it - we will be offering official Baby, the Stars Shine Bright and Alice and the Pirates reservations.

Initially, we will be doing so in store only, so for now, this will mainly affect our local customers.  We hope that we can expand this service online in the future.

This will begin with the Versailles Rose Bouquet series from Baby, the Stars Shine Bright and Rapunzel Doll Dress from Alice and the Pirates.  We will begin offering these for reserve on March 11, and we'll have more information in a separate blog post shortly.

Our reserve process will work similarly to Baby's own stores.  We'll post a rundown of the process and rules soon.

Watch for more info over the next few days (before the 11th)!

New KERA + Gothic & Lolita Bible, plus upcoming shipment info

Yesterday, we finally received KERA #152 for April 2011, as well as the just-released Gothic & Lolita Bible #39! Midori is everywhere! (Incidentally, some of you might recognize the choker she's wearing on the cover.)

Because we ordered KERA a bit late and it was nearly sold out in Japan already, we have an extremely limited number available. Hurry if you want one.

And just to update you guys on some upcoming stuff, we're expecting new items from Atelier-Pierrot, Putumayo, and of course Baby, the Stars Shine Bright and Alice and the Pirates shortly. The Atelier-Pierrot and Putumayo items will probably arrive first. Our most recent information on our Baby items is that they will most likely ship from Japan in mid-March. Don't worry, you won't miss it - there will be great fanfare when it all gets here!

Soon after, we're expecting to stock new items from SEX POT ReVeNGe, once they've finished receiving their spring/summer collection items. So there's a lot to look forward to, although we've still got a lot of great stuff in our store right now!

In preparation for spring, all remaining winter coats are now on sale! We've honestly sold through most of our inventory, but remaining coats including the Hellcat Punks kumamimi fake fur blouson, the SEX POT ReVeNGe Mind Punk hooded jacket, and the Atelier-Pierrot bustle coats are all on sale!
