A Buddhist Temple, Chocolate Covered Bananas, and a Harajuku Style Pig

Today, the Harajuku Fashion Walk ventured outside Harajuku and explored Tokyo’s Asakusa and Ueno districts

Kjeld Duits: @Zolpo: Thank you. @MJ: Nerds are considered cool, these days. Incidentally, she told me that the resemblance was not coincidental ^_-
MJ: @Kjeld Duits: Me too, but I didn’t wanna sound like a nerd. /// It’s the hat probably. (:
Zolpo: Wow! Looks amazing!

Kjeld Duits: @Lydianon: Glad you like the site, Lydianon. Yes, things have gotten a lot easier, haven’t they!
Lydianon: I must find shoes like this! When I was young (might as well have been back in the dark ages: pre-internet!) It was so much more difficult to find clothing and accessories from all over the world and in so many styles and price points… I stalked all the nearby thrift stores, it actually took a lot of time and effort to put together some of my favorite looks. Occasionally I’m still in wonder at the fact that almost ANYTHING I can imagine to wear I can find online anywhere in the world and have it mailed right to my home! Lol, the wonders of our modern world!
Kjeld Duits: @Miyuki: One more reason for seeing fewer cool people on the street: social networking sites like Instagram. People don’t need to go to a central place like Harajuku anymore to see cool fashion or show off their own.

Kjeld Duits: @MJ: I love your description of the knit cap, has some bubblegum feeling about it. Your observation about the colors is very true. When I first started shooting Japanese street fashion, I initially felt that some people seemed to have just randomly thrown colors together. But when I started to add the color blocks to the articles, I discovered that there was an incredible amount of repetition of the colors in the different items, and also that the tone of all the colors usually matched. I think that Japan’s long history of working with kimono has created this incredible ability to use color.
MJ: oh, i like this one. the colors are kind of cheerful, the hat has some bubblegum feeling about it. :D i’m not a big fan of the shoes but they fit the whole outfit nicely. it’s neat how every color can connect/match to another one (cardigan-scarf, skirt-scarf, hair-shoes, hat-scarf… great scarf!^^). makes the whole thing appear well thought out.

Kjeld Duits: @Maria: I have been shooting Airi since she was 15 and she is developing a really nice style of her own.
Maria: It looks very sportif but the leggings give it a casual feeling. Really nice ^ ^ I like her phone cover!
