Spring/Summer 2011 Collection of Japanese fashion brand DISCOVERED on October 19, 2010, during the Japan Fashion Week in Tokyo.

Kjeld Duits: @Aga: That’s the thing about Japanese fashion, there is no history and politics in Japanese fashion. Especially not when Western elements are used. Fashion here is rarely, if ever, used to make political or social statements.
Aga: Unfortunately some of the pieces in the collection are not punk[y] enough but too heavily influenced by skin heads (60’s -90’s subculture often associated with fascism, right wing and racism), particularly the accessories are too reminiscent of nazi crosses, (pinned in same place). I agree this is a hard collection. Hard to understand why such promotion, not all things are pretty and some elements should not be borrowed with such ease, little more engagement with the history and meanings of what you are actually appropriating is needed here DISCOVERED!. I would have thought that Docs (Dr. Martens) and bleached jeans would have been enough to show the 80’s influence.
Nadine: So eclectic. I say no to the super high wasted pants but hey that is just me. I don’t know if I could take a guy seriously in a pair of those. The rest of the looks were very tuff.

Kjeld Duits: @Sarah: It’s body paint that’s made to look like a tattoo.
Sarah: I love all of the pieces in this! I would wear a lot of them :) I especially love the designs on the model’s necks, are they tattoos? I noticed that the designers have them too.
Kjeld Duits: @Sierra: They ARE!

petitesam: @Leah B. I thought Daft Punk originally, too! :D I love that there isn’t really a gender to the clothing, and the helmets reinforce the idea. I also like the tribal aspects, ponchos, fringe, etc. Nifty!
Kjeld Duits: @Leah B.: I just played some of his music to imagine how you experienced these photos. Quite interesting. The actual music played during the show was hard rock.
Leah B.: For some strange reason, I got Daft Punk stuck in my head while looking through this show. ;)

Kjeld Duits: @Maria: Thanks!
Maria: @KD: Cool you are showing your other works. Thanks n_n
Kjeld Duits: @Etsune: I am both a photographer and journalist, actually. I am officially a news photographer and journalist, but fashion is becoming an increasingly larger part of my workload. My other specialty is photographing and writing about natural disasters; I have covered all the largest earthquakes in Asia since 1995, including the 2004 tsunami. I love how your work there really helps people (I donate my photos to organizations like the Red Cross). See some non-fashion work here: • Pakistan flood victims pleased with US aid • Pakistani children on the motorway The above two articles were written in Dutch; the English translation is really bad—I should have written it in English myself. Don’t forget to click on the slideshow below each article! And a slideshow of some of my work at lightstalkers. All of it quite old, but it gives a good overview.

jsPRO: jajaja cool!!!!!!
Yukishou: It’s like a japanese urkel,very campy outdoorsy, shades of blue/green and brown, and of course those socks and i like the hat to match .
Kjeld Duits: @Keekii: I think it’s quite a feat how Togo pulls off that mixture of geeky and cool. By the way, there was also a famous Japanese admiral with the name Togo, Heihachiro Togo. He made his fame during the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905 when his forces defeated the Russian fleet. So in Japan the name Togo actually has a very familiar ring to it.

Kjeld Duits: @Maria: Shota’s socks did really look like that.
