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.

This is a great color pallet.

Wow, really interesting. I feel like fashion right now just gets more and more avant-garde. I feel like this kind of thing will hit its peak once the economy fully bounces back.
Also random, but I really like wearing shorts over rolled-up jeans right now. I think Comme Des Garcons kind of started this.

@Lactose Intoler-Art: I think Japanese fashion is being awakened, and expect to see a lot more good stuff over the next few years.

Love to see your shorts over rolled-up jeans.

Just because of these outfits I wish I were a man! Nice detailing, pretty shoes, and overall – super unique, and fresh aura. I wish more guys would dress like that on the street. I’d be a pleasure to look at.
P.S. I know this isn’t the right place for it but I didn’t know where else to ask…please, please, please – give me a piece of advice on what kind of shoes to choose for my graduation (bachelors). I decided I wanted to go for a color-blocking look. All black ensemble, and then crazy colorful shoes. I already got a pretty, short black dress (quite like this one but in black), and now I’m looking at different shoe options. Been thinking of these , as they are super affordable, and these , or click . But I’m totally open for suggestions. The only requirements are to be no more than 150$ (not such an important graduation for me anyway), and to be funky :).
If you have any suggestions, or other cools ideas – please, let me know, because I totally believe in your great taste! Thank you!

@Lia: You can always ask a question like this on our facebook page. I am not active enough there, I am afraid, so I may miss some questions. But I am sure you’ll get good feedback from other people there as well.

I love the dress. I think that in black it will look very classy. It reminds me of one of the dresses that Audrey Hepburn wears in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Although that one looks very different in the shoulders though.

The three types of shoes you showed are quite different. The first ones are kind of sexy and loud, the second classy and subdued, the third creative and playful. So it depends on the message that you want to give with your shoes and your personality: sexy and loud, classy and subdued, or creative and playful.

That dress in black will look quite classy, so I would go with the Block Pump Hi Heel or something similar.

Both the color and design of these shoes ooze class and understated beauty. They will bring out your beauty, and that of your dress, without screaming for attention.

I love the shoes these guys are rocking! They’re very fashionable, yet manly =)

im seeing a lot of pockets in most of the collections you’ve posted so far Kjeld…like bag like pocket pieces (pants, shorts, skirts, shirts) new trend?

@Sierra: I hadn’t noticed at all. Great observation, Sierra. I will need to pay more attention!

@Etsune: I love the shoes in Japan—I am always terribly disappointed when I try to shop for shoes abroad. They do have my size there, but few shoes I want or can afford to buy. Japanese shoes are amazingly affordable. Sneakers start at JPY 2,000-3,000 (USD 25.00-37.50).

Oh wow! That’s actually not that bad!
Mostly, shoes here in America are not that affordable.
I mean, i guess it depends where you shop, because in some places you can actually get REALLY good prices.
But I also know that generally, if you buy shoes here, the price will depend on the brand. For example, converse shoes may start at 50 dollars, but nikes may start at 75. Just in example, it’s not always the case…

Oct 26, 2010 (4359 days ago)

@Kjeld – Great minds think alike! That’s exactly the pair I was going for! I actually just bought it in white. I hope they fit well, so I won’t have to look for another option. Thank you very much, Kjeld. Next time definitely will use the FB page :).

Oct 26, 2010 (4359 days ago)

P.S. Actually, it’s in beige but to me it looks like pearly white :). As for the prices of shoes – they fluctuate soooo much from place to place. In my country, sneakers can start from as low as 15$ (if you go for a Bulgarian brand, and I have to admit – some are pretty awesome, better than many models from ‘didas or Nike), and as for popular brands such as Converse or KSwiss, or even Nike – about 35$ is where they start.
Yet, although it’s so affordable, I hate buying anything here bcz so I know too many people will have it (most BG teens or early 20s ppls are addicted to shopping and their looks).

Oct 26, 2010 (4359 days ago)

@Lia: Sounds like I should go shopping in Bulgaria! ^ _ –

By the way, did you also check our eBay affiliate store for shoes (and other stuff)? Many of the vendors sell brand new items (it has been a long time since eBay only sold used items). JS receives a small percentage of each sale, so you help support JS when shopping at our store. Make sure though to access the item from the JS site.

@Kjeld – WOW, I’m a huge Ebay fan (been shopping there for years but didn’t know you had an affiliate store there, I’m so far behind in the news section hahaha). I will definitely check it out now, and I’m pretty sure I’ll find me something :)).
P.S. Already put a bid on a few items! I’m gutted that all the clothes are in asian sizes bcz I’ve already fallen for it once, and now I’m quite certain I got no business trying to stuff myself into asian “flowy tops/short dresses” bcz they look like skintight tube tanktops on me :).

Oct 26, 2010 (4359 days ago)

Very interesting! I love all the trends especially the outfit of the guy with a cup wearing a lot of bangles. That was so cool. Thank you so much for sharing. =D

@Lia: We don’t actually have a shop at eBay (yet), but we have selected some of the best Japan-related items and vendors on eBay and show them at JS, so you can do your shopping straight from this site. When you order, you are taken to eBay. Sorry to hear that Asian sizes cause trouble!

@Jassy: Glad you like this show. It was actually the first time for me to shoot PHENOMENON. I quite liked their designs myself.

Wow…these are cool designs! I’m liking the octopus (mesh?) tank top. I don’t think that many men in the US would wear anything like this…but it’s cool that I know that somewhere in the world people are wearing clothes like these. It’s refreshing.

Amazing!!! great pics!
