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.

You have shot her before, right? I remember that name…
It’s so cute the way she matched the headband with her socks :3
I looove that dress. It’s very simple and very feminine. <3

Sometimes, when I read JPY 0, I think that maybe that person used coupons ^^U

@Maria: You have a great memory. I shot Akari in December. I absolutely adore this dress. It is like the little black dress, but in ivory. Akari was scouted as a hair model. Therefore the free haircut. ^_-

@KD: Yes! That’s what I meant with the dress. It is like those must-have-in-your-closet pieces. I bet this dress has 101 ways of wearing it ;)
She should keep modeling, she is so pretty ^^

@Maria: She should keep modeling, she is so pretty ^^ — I think so, too!!! But most agencies require tall models; Akira is probably just a bit over 150 cm…

Mint green and polka dots never looked better! This outfit is incredible!

@DelicateDoilies: Thanks to you referring to mint this look has now created a picture in my mind of a beautiful dish of rich vanilla ice cream with a mint on top, a simple yet perfect delicacy that nobody can resist. ^^

Wow! She is stunning, and beautiful! I love her use of color, and her hair is really cool too! Where is Kummy selling her bags? I remember seeing her street snaps awhile back where she had illustrated her own bags. Maybe they’re at “The Virgin Mary?”

And @Kjeld-san-Nobody can resist ice cream..Unless they are ALLERGIC to it..Right? Hahahahaha

@Lactose Intoler-Art: Akari did tell me where she got her bag, but I forgot… Unless they are ALLERGIC to it..Right? — Exactly! That’s both of us. ^_-

@KD&Lactose Intoler-Art: 私の友達はアイスクリームあまり好きじゃありません。 (._.;)

@Maria: Better not to like than getting sick from it like Lactose Intoler-Art and me. ^_-

Very attractive. The type of girl that will look good in anything she wears. The hair cut and colour are fantastic.

@akika: Looking forward to doing more shoots with Akari. Her school is very near the JS office and I’ll probably run into her again.
