Kjeld Duits About the Photographer

Inspired by the stunningly creative street fashion that exploded on the streets of Tokyo and Osaka in the late 1990’s, photo-journalist Kjeld Duits launched JAPANESE STREETS in 2002. This makes JS one of the first fashion blogs on the net, and the very first to cover Japanese street fashion.

Interesting fashion. I’ve never really seen “dolly kei” before! The Barbie head is a little bit scary, mind (I am a bit of a coward though)! The “belt” looks like what goes around a curtain. That’s a very inventive idea.

I like the bag: pretty, simple and handmade :D
Where have I seen those socks? :/ hmm… I wonder…
Two cellphones! a busy student, huh? xD I like the honeybee model :3

@Mel: since the “belt” is selfmade, maybe it IS a curtain n_n

Maria is correct, this is indeed part of a curtain. You may have noticed the photos of people wearing tassels as well recently.

Wow. She is just so artistic. I really like the use of the Barbie doll and the apron and everyting. Simple but very deep!

@KD: well, my mom has tassels around some huge flower vases so maybe I clean them and put them on, if the look good on me I’ll keep them n_n

I love her hood, makes her look like some sort of fairytale character ^^

This is why I love Dolly-kei… it has all the pretty-pretty of Lolita, with those wonderful touches of decay and creepiness. Again, outfit inspiration for tomorrow… ~♪

Thank you for taking a photograph.
It is Riho of this photograph.
I am glad to get a lot of comment.
Thank you.

Love her socks, and great to see the tassels as a belt. We recently got a belt with tassels at the boutique I work at, but it’s pretty boring (black, leather).. I like Riho’s much better! I’m waiting for tassel earrings. ^^

The hood looks really good on her and I agree that the cut-off barbie head is a little bit creepy, but I think the idea is great – it is “Dolly” kei after all :)

Additionally, I think the floral tights were a good choice for the shoes, because it makes both things stand out some more and it looks cute too ;)

Oh, I like socks and sandals combination the best! And these buttons are really nice.
She looks so individually and unusual but still cute, like it ^^

Oh now she looks very interesting. Favorites are the hoodie and belt, especially the belt i feel like its an important touch to the whole outfit. And like those above me have said, the socks and sandals are an AWESOME combination their so adorable im so inlove lol.

@Anya: I als thought of a fairy tale when I saw her. I should have shot her in a forest!

@Maria: Yes, try that out!

@RIHO: Great to see you comment. Hope to see more of you!

@Keekii: Totally understand the feelings about Barbie’s lonely head, and I completely agree with you. It fits the whole look really well.

WHen I see this outfit, I think of the Greek goddesses or the muses or something.

@Etsune, yeah now that you mention it, the hoodie style gives me the idea of cosplay xD

Maria
Sep 11, 2010 (2629 days ago)

Maybe the romantic aspect of this style makes you think of a Greek goddess and cosplay?

@Kjeld: Ummm, I don’t know about COSPLAY, but the color palette of white and gold and the way the gold belt is just reminds me of cosplay

Etsune
Sep 24, 2010 (2616 days ago)

@Etsune: I can understand that. Makes me realize that I haven’t shot cosplay for a long time!
