Kjeld Duits: @Juji: I can’ think of a better example of the Japanese philosophy of life, and the importance of harmony here. After Bhuddism entered Japan it encountered native beliefs that we now call Shintoism. The two ended up cooperating. Many Buddhist temple featured Shinto shrines to protect them. In Christian cultures, adherers of original believes were burned at the stake as witches and devil worshippers. Just imagine if at the entrance of Christian churches, there would be temples where native gods are worshipped in order to protect the church… That would be the original Japanese way. Actually, Christianity was welcomed with the same open arms in the 16th century. Until its worshippers were encouraged to burn down Buddhist temples, and its foreign leaders were feared to have political motives.
Juju: …A pentagram a crucifix and a bindi? I know they’re used solely as fashion accesories, but… Otherwise she seems really sweet and I LOVE her smiley piercing, it’s so unique!
Kjeld Duits: @Jenni: I ought to shoot Narumi every week. ^_-

Kjeld Duits: @andy: I actually mentioned Pipi to Kurebayashi when I photographed her, but she was unfamiliar with Lindgren’s masterpiece.

Kjeld Duits: @María: I have no problem with multiple posts, María. ^^ Yes, Ringo Shiina is quite popular among the people I shoot. I remember the first time I shot Takuya Angel. Ringo Shiina was the background music. I even mentioned it in my article at the time. Re. the leggings, I first thought they were layered, but this is actually how Alice Auaa designed them. Reminds me of a spider web. ^_-
María: Ringo Shiina is very famous at JS. I remembered seeing that video or singer before here, so I looked it out. There are various videos of her! Sorry about doble post
María: Love the leggings and how she arranged her stuff ^^

Kjeld Duits: @Simona: Thank you for your kind words. I definitely want to interview Kazuhiro Watanabe!
Simona: She has bright personality and I admire that she tries different things to explore further with the design for tights and leggings. What she said about the owner of Avantgarde caught my attention – that nothing is impossible. I was wondering if it is possible for you to interview Kazuhiro Watanabe. I would love to know more about the way he’s thinking and the history behind his brand. Thank you for making possible to catch a glimpse on Japanese fashion and people even if we are so far away.:D
Kjeld Duits: @mark: THANKS!
