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.

Wow! His outfit is so cheap..Very interesting because he’s definitely going for a very high-end look. I love the net bag. That’s interesting. Is that something that stood out to you when you scouted him? Not only the pop color amongst that black but just the uniqueness of it?

@Lactose Intoler-Art: Yes, that bag didn’t make any sense to me. It still doesn’t, actually… But that’s what makes his look so extra-ordinary. Without the bag, the sunglasses, the leggings and the shoes, it wouldn’t be half as interesting. He painted the shoes with nail polish(!), if I remember correctly.

Nail polish, for real? I love it. I was just wondering what fashion-minded people in Japan who don’t have the cash to drop 300,000 yen on a coat, etc, do to set themselves apart and look wonderful. Because most of the people I see on fashion blogs drop serious moolah. I think it takes more creativity when you don’t have as much money.

@Leah B.: One great advantage that Japanese fashionista’s have is the enormous number of fantastic used and vintage clothing stores. Within a 10 minute radius (on foot!) from the spot where I photographed Turaco, there are at least 10 of the very best of such shops.
