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!

New Book Features International Lolita Fashion Fans

Japanese Lolita fashion promoter Ai Akizuki launches a photo book about Lolitas outside Japan

anon: Lolita is about dead in Japan. Lolita is more popular outside of Japan so lolita brands hold alot of events like this one in the blog post outside of Japan. I live in Japan and everytime I go into a lolita brand clothing shop in Japan I never see a single customer or looker ever. Don’t know how they manage to keep the shops open they might eventually be only an online shop since most of their sales are overseas. Most subcultures of fashion died in Japan now its mostly generic plain clothes everywhere.
Emma: Ahhh so many pretty lolita dresses!

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!
