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.

I think she looks very much like a doll
I really like the different textures she uses. (except for the bag feel like it doesn’t belong.) =^___^=

@Dustheap: I think there is some influence from Dolly Kei.
@Maria: tarock with ricco is indeed cool.

Yeah, I was thinking it was a little bit like Dolly Kei. It’s a very cute outfit, though…love that hair piece she’s wearing…netting and bows(very cute). The shoes and the bag kind of match, though…and that dress is soo pretty. I like her makeup and hair too!

@code_name_kohaku: If I remember correctly, she is studying fashion at Bunka Fashion College, so fashion is quite important to Wakana.

Dear all,
I confirm she’s from the “Dolly Kei” group, there is no doubt. The use of vintage clothes, the floral tapestries stole, the shops she quoted, her fringe, her make up with silver glitter under her eyes, the strange head piece negligibly set, and the “un-fresh” general look that gives the atmosphere of old antiques, ingredients of Dolly Kei are here. There is not silhouette really in Dolly Kei, it is very free to do whatever you want. But some rules have to be observed like choosing vintage clothes and accessories almost only. I say almost because Dolly Kei has no dogma rules, so you might choose to wear shoes from Shibuya 109 but I’ll say that generally 90% of the silhouette is made of vintage. No yet morbid accessories here, but I don’t observe it in 100% of the cases, nor freemason accessories, or the now famous “Reinette et Mirabelle” poison bottle necklace, but this is understandable as these ones are quite expensive (between 10 000 and 20 000 yens and up).

Her cell phone looks JUST like the Motorola Droid. Her style is incredibly vintage and wonderful!

@Jennifer: It is a very recent design—it is really clean and almost austere.

So Dolly-Kei! I love everything that these girls come up with, I wish I had time/money/atmosphere to dress like they do, so glamorous and elegant. Her brocade dress looks very cozy, I love how big the sleeves are. I also think her head piece would look great with Ogata’s (from yesterday) hair and outfit.

i do see the dolly kei references, the shirt the tassels and soft make up but it’s really cool in that she makes it more Japanese instead of euro.
