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! Talk about mixing the fashion tribes together and making it her own. These last two shots are so great, and I like that they’re not people I’ve seen a million times in FRUiTS and other street snap sites.

Oh wow! I love her style, it looks random but it also looks like she’s taken time choosing what to wear >.<

@Lactose Intoler-Art: I think many of the photographers and fashion hunters kind of copy each other, and also stick with the people they know. Safe choices. It is kind of a tiny world. Now that I am based in Tokyo, I intend to venture beyond Harajuku and widen my net a bit. I hope to be able to find more new faces.

@SHOGO: Totally agree. I think Minami really thought about her outfit.

She is so pretty. I love her style, looks like it came out from some music video -
Vivienne Westwood FTW <3

@Kjeld..I totally know what you mean. A lot of the same fashion tribes take pictures of each other, which makes it appear smaller than it really is. I have a friend that works at a really popular shop (I’ll keep it private so people won’t know who I’m talking about, haha)..But I know the other shop staff gets photographed a LOT more than she does, but her style is equally as great..So its really strange for me. She’s been on RID a couple of times..But maybe its just because she doesn’t really walk Omotesando at the peak “street snap times” if you know what I mean….ha. Good luck on capturing the OTHER amazing faces and styles in Tokyo along with the ones we already know! :)

@Maria: Yes, it does look like she could have just stepped out of a music video, doesn’t it!

@Lactose Intoler-Art: That’s a good other point—the fact that all of the photographers congregate at the same spots. When I first started back in 2001/2002, there were no other, or at least very few, photographers, now you have this stretch from where GAP used to be until the koban police station where you can’t walk without bumping into a few dozen.

Wow, one of my favourite 2011 steet snaps so far ! I remember there was a kind of clownesque/burlesque trend on Harajuku circa 2009 and I thought it was really awesome and interesting. This girl remind me of that trend but there’s also lots of new trends mixed in this outfit. It’s very clever and beautiful in my opinion.
