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: @Miyuki: I don’t think that Harajuku street style is dying out yet, but Harajuku is now mostly a tourist attraction and not so interesting anymore for the cool kids. Many shops in Harajuku cater to tourists instead of Japanese, so it is becoming difficult for them to find cool things there now. Jingubashi Bridge in Harajuku was never really a place for Harajuku fashion, more a location for cosplayers to get together. But that already stopped many years ago when the police asked them to leave. Contributing factors are an extremely low birth rate and an economy that makes it difficult for young people to find good jobs. So there are fewer young people, they have less money to spend, and they are worried about their future. Anyway, it has now become more difficult to see cool people on the street. They have gone underground again and you will need to go to events to meet them.
Miyuki : Do you think harajuku street fashion is dying out? I’ve heard from some people that you just don’t really see it as much anymore and that there used to be people on the harajuku bridge on Sundays and that you just don’t see that much anymore. I sure hope its not. But I thought I’d ask a professional on the topic like you. Thanks.

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: @Henna Makkonen: Yes, Rika is badass in the positive meaning of the word. She knows how to make things look cool.
Kjeld Duits: @Maria: And BEFORE actually getting married! ^_-
Henna Makkonen: Love the look – volume on shoulders look great, sunglasses are cool and colours are bright. Somehow this whole outfit looks a bit “badass” if you could say that! All the details fit perfectly and the whole outfit works great in an unique way!
