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.

Seeing his shoes and bag tells me he really knows how to dress…. and shorts completely unique ;D
I think I was missing casual styles in here n_n

Ooo, his hair is wonderful! His whole look is very nice; casual but cool.
And that phone… dreamy… Thanks for the link!

Wow, those shorts are great! While the sewing of the details seems professional, they still look like it’s been done by him to make the shorts less loose in an unique way. As for his phone – WHAT A GREAT DESIGN! I love it! So clean, and minimalistic!
Speaking of hair…ok, I’m having a huge dilemma right now! Seeing all those cool kids with amazing hairstyles makes me wanting one even more. Yet, my hair is a total virgin to dyeing, and I’m really worried that if I do dye it, it will become even weaker. I have an appointment with my hairstylist tomorrow, and I have to decide by then. I’m sick of my long safe hair, I want a crazy short red one!!! I just cannot dare to go for it :(.

@Lia: I so understand your hair dilemma. Dyeing your hair of course does damage your hair. And making it short and red is scary. But your hair will grow back. So if you don’t like it. time will give you back the hair you had. If you don’t like the red, you can always dye it another color, like your natural one for example.

About the jeans: FACETASM jeans usually kind of break the mould, so all the sewing is part of the original design.

@Kjeld : I just checked out the brand, and they have some of the craziest designs! I love them! Look at these half-skinny, half-wide hip jeans.
How cool is that! As for my hair, I am still thinking about it because I really don’t have the strongest hair out there, so dyeing is risky for me. I’ll simply ask my hairstylist for a piece of advice, and go with it. According to my mom, one tone darker than my natural color would look good on me, and as the change won’t be too drastic – I might go for it. Once, I feel comfortable with dyed hair, I might go for red for real.

I love his hair. It’s a totally wonderful and admirable achievement. His shoes are great, they are bang on trend!

@Burgess: I was sure I’d seen him somewhere but couldn’t put my finger to which place that was. I actually saw him just a few days ago on that other site. I like his look on this site better though.

@Lia: FACETASM is pretty wild, eh! Some of them are far from what is “accepted” and I don’t think everybody can “get” their designs.

Your decision on your hair sounds like the careful and sensible route to take. Good luck!

@burgess: Thanks for sharing the link. I hadn’t visited Style Arena for a while. I see they now also show all the details like JS has been doing for many years.
