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.

It’s been a while since I’ve looked at your blog, given that while I sometimes post Japanese street fashion myself, it is only a portion of my site. I also tend to focus on the Kansai area since that is where I live.

Do you run into readers that believe these outfits are typical of Japanese style choices? I sometimes do. I wonder if the reasoning is because blogs like yours focus on the most extreme. Not a criticism, just a ponder.

@Kionon: Happy New Year! Actually, I don’t feel that I focus on the most extreme, but I do focus on a small geographic area: Harajuku and Shibuya. When you walk around here for a day you can see dozens of people like the ones that I photograph. Especially if you go to the places where fashionable people hang out.

Possibly some people generalize and imagine that every single Japanese looks like this, but I think most of the people visiting JAPANESE STREETS are generally quite well informed about Japan.

Oh cool! This guy is one of my favorites to watch lately. Isn’t he the designer behind Nusumigui? What event was this? I really like his personal style, and his work is also really really amazing.
I love the little block of wood.
And I believe he is from Kansai anyway, because he showed some of his stuff at the Intaramango event we were at, right?

@Lactose Intoler-Art: Yes, Yuma is the man behind Nusumigui. I shot this him a while back at the Taito Designers Village event.

@Tyrell: I’m sorry, I don’t know… But perhaps you could try to make one yourself by putting old sweaters and blankets and such together? ^_-

@Kjeld Duits: Oh, too bad but thanks for the creative solution. I wouldn’t have thought of that!

@Tyrell: What I like about Japanese street fashion is how people look at things with fresh eyes and don’t let themselves be limited by dogmatic thinking. This is partly because Western fashion hasn’t been around for a long time yet in Japan. In a way, things are still new. That’s why a plastic soldier can become an earring, a curtain tassel a fashion accessory, and parts from different clothing can be combined into something new. Be adventurous and inventive! ^_-
