Tokyo Rebel staff in Tokyo! Behind the scenes with Re:NO and Super Lovers!

We posted this photo on our Twitter yesterday, but just to give the rest of our followers a little tease - we're in Tokyo! With KERA model Re:NO! At the Super Lovers store at Laforet Harajuku!

For those of you new to our store, many of our brand pages feature video introductions to the brand - and we like to bring you photographic shop tours of the brand shops in Japan too so you can get an even better feel for the brands. We finally filmed a Super Lovers brand introduction yesterday with Re:NO, and we'll be bringing that to you soon! How cute does she look wearing Super Lovers?? We'll be stocking many of the items she's wearing!

Watch for all of that in the coming days and weeks. It takes a little time to put together these videos, but it'll be worth the wait!

(By the way, our store remains open while we're in Japan, both the physical location and web store.)

Web site relaunch!! And new video update!

It's time for Tokyo Rebel 2.0!

We've just launched a newly-redesigned web site that's easier to use, easier to look at and lets us do a lot more stuff than we could before. Check it out!

For an overview of all the new features, please read this article on the new site. A few highlights: homepage slideshow, tagged and filtered collection pages, related items, and much more! (If you don't know what any of those things are, just look at the site!) We feel like we've finally taken the leap into the 21st century with our new site, which is as clean and modern as any site out there.

(For the tech geeks among you, it makes extensive use of HTML 5 and Ajax technologies - the homepage slideshow, for example, is all HTML.)

One of the new homepage slides you'll see is our all-new stock update video vol. 28! We scrambled to get that included before the launch, and we made it! You'll see Kitsy introduce our new items that we just received from SEX POT ReVeNGe. Since our new homepage doesn't include video (for faster loading), we created a page on our site that, for now, just houses our newest video update. But this is a good chance for us to remind you to check out our YouTube Channel as well - you can find all of our video updates there!

We'll post the stock update here too:

Due to some negligent camera battery management on our part (main and backup batteries dead), this video was shot on a cell phone. Doesn't look bad considering, but any complaints, save them for Samsung!

Check out the new SEX POT ReVeNGe collection page for all of these products!

New SEX POT items! Video to follow!

Punk and VK fans, today's your day - we've got new SEX POT items to tell you about!

This is part one of our Spring/Summer 2012 shipment from SEX POT ReVeNGe, including new cutsews, cardigans, bags as well as restocked necklaces, wristbands and the popular studded leather rings! We do expect more of their latest collection later, but don't wait if you see something you like from this batch - we generally aren't kidding when we say stuff sells out. Our next shipment will probably be sometime early to mid April.

Here's what we received this week - and all of these items are already available on our site:

We'll have video with Kitsy introducing these products soon, coinciding with the major update of our web site that we're planning! Watch for that soon. In the meantime, please take a look at these new products, and feel free to place your orders!

Site note: changes afoot!

This is just a quick note to "pardon our dust" over the next week or two as we gear up for some big changes to our web site. We're soon going to have an all-new site with some new features and a much more modern look that's also easier to read and navigate. We'll go through some of the actual changes in another post, but once we get everything working correctly, there's nothing not to like about the new site.

We've actually already got the new site set up and mostly tested, but there are a few things we need to do that may require us to occasionally break some things (hopefully temporarily) on the current site. Hopefully this won't be too noticeable or go on too long, but it just depends on how stubborn the few remaining bugs are. It'll all be worth it in the end.

So if you do happen to see weird formatting or other problems somewhere on our site over the next couple weeks, fret not - we probably know about it, and we probably did it on purpose as part of our testing and debugging. This is the final stage before launch. As you can probably guess, we do not have a dedicated IT department, so we'll need to do this during any relatively slow periods at our store - if it takes a little longer than planned, that just means we've been busy! (And our customers always come first.) Either way, it's going to be good.

Obviously, we encourage you to continue using the current site in the meantime, which will remain fully functional until the relaunch.


New and restocked Baby/AATP items, including Trick Hat, Pricked Heart!

Yesterday we received a big box of items from Baby, the Stars Shine Bright and Alice and the Pirates, including the first batch of our Trick Hat, Pricked Heart series items! This is the brand new series from Alice and the Pirates that is still in the process of being released in Japan.

Our Trick Hat, Pricked Heart series items include both the baby doll and corset style jumper skirts in various colorways, as well as matching socks. Sorry, no skirts or headbows yet - so those of you who preordered those items will unfortunately need to wait a little longer. But they should be here soon!

We've also restocked the popular Usakumya pochettes and rucksacks - get them while you can, because they seem to always sell out! (We'll try to get more if that happens again.)

Those looking for a cute new bag for spring also need look no further, because we've got both Ribbon Heart Bags (these are very hard to get!) as well as the new Alice Watch Pochette in several different colors.

The restocked Usakumya items are available online now - the rest will be available over the next couple of days. As always, you can pick any of these items up in store as well.

The full list:
