120624-9782 - Japanese street fashion in Sangenjaya, Tokyo (Hawkins Sport)
Saturday June 30, 2012
Kjeld Duits: @Valerie: Later this month I hope to be able to make some time. Let’s set it up then. ^^ @Nyurah: Glad you like it! We’ll have to do this more often. ^_-
Kjeld Duits: @Valerie: Thank you for your nice words about my work, Valerie. Totally agree with the influence of Japanese culture—both traditional (kimono, yukata, shibori, ukiyoe, etc) and modern (manga, anime, music, etc)—on Japanese street fashion. Certainly, many people are barely aware of it themselves what they have been influenced by. By the way, crosses and Christian symbols have been sold by Bunkaya Zakaten for at least two decades, long before the Virgin Mary or Grimoire existed. But shops like the Virgin Mary, Grimoire and Nadia have undoubtedly helped to increase their popularity. ^^
Kjeld Duits: @Valerie: I will post three short ones, if you don’t mind; long comments break up the front pages… ^^
