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 completely agree with Maria! I know this year – summer – neon colours are more fashionable, but I really love pastels colours so…

@Maria & Irene: I immediately fell in love with Ai’s soft pastels and the summery mood of her look. And then the awesome shoes!

The shoes with the socks are sooooo cute and beautiful and I like her pretty face and the polka dots.

@nora: Aren’t those shoes gorgeous. I love how Ai combined these classy shoes with such a summery look.

@KD: Same happened to me. I saw the shorts & shirt first, and thought “Cute!”, then I saw her shoes and I thought “Super cute!” I am going to google ANAP ^^U

@Maria: Here is the ANAP company site. It features a link to the online shopping site. ^^

I love how she blended the different colors and patterns. The pastel pink and seafoam green are so fresh together. I wish i had this outfit in my closet. _ <3

@Amber: Great to hear we were able to inspire you. I hope you can find something similar. ^^

She looks fresh as a daisy!

She reminds me a little of the 60ies look, it has this special cheeky and fresh touch…^^
Looking really great there, ai-san!
:)

@ Nyurah: It’s probably 50/60s inspired. Ai studies at Bunka Fashion College, so I assume she has had to study fashion history.

Kjeld Duits (photographer)
Jul 7, 2012 (847 days ago)

Studying fashion or art history must be so inspiring :D
@KD: Thanks for the link ^^

Maria
Jul 7, 2012 (847 days ago)

@Maria: Very welcome!

Kjeld Duits (photographer)
Jul 7, 2012 (847 days ago)

@Kjeld: I really admire those who study at Bunka… Would be like a dream for me…

Nyurah
Jul 8, 2012 (846 days ago)

@Nyurah: Why not make your dream come true? Master Japanese and study at Bunka? Lots of non-Japanese are studying at Bunka. ^^

Kjeld Duits (photographer)
Jul 8, 2012 (846 days ago)

@Kjeld: I don’t really think I’d be good enough… I mean, I love drawing, fashion, fashion hiytory and such but I don’t have much experiance in sewing for example and every time I see what the students there are able to accomplish…
But thanks a lot for your encouragement. :)

Nyurah

@Nyurah: I don’t think that all courses include sewing. There are courses to prepare people for the marketing or editorial side of fashion, too, I believe.

Kjeld Duits (photographer)
Jul 8, 2012 (845 days ago)

@Nyurah & KD: Of course there are other courses! Fashion is not only about making clothing ;) Nyrurah, let’s make out dream come true! がんばりましょう!

Maria
Jul 9, 2012 (845 days ago)

@Kjeld and Maria: To both of you, thank you so much for encouraging me! Most important for me right now would be to take Japanese-lessons I guess, and if possible, I will also take sewing classes… And I will inform myself about Bunka as precisely as possible.
Once again, thank you very much, it motivaded me a lot right now. Because it always seems like something impossible and I can’t really talk about it to someone, because they don’t know Bunka and my mum doesn’t even know that my goal is to study in Japan…

Maria, is it your dream too to study there?

Lots of love and thank you’s
<3

Nyurah

@Nuyrah: Please remember that whether something is possible or impossible is something you decide in your head and heart. Some things are physically impossible, a frog turning into a handsome prince, for example. But otherwise you can make things come true by doing whatever is necessary to make them happen. Sometimes this can be hard work requiring passionate dedication, but relatively few things are actually impossible. ^_- if thousands of other people can study at Bunka, it must be possible for you as well. There must be a way somehow. Good luck!

@Nyurah: yep, it is my dream. I am studying Japanese right now. I am interested in the marketing/styling side of fashion, but it is still a long road to Japan ^^U

Maria

It;s soo cute <3 I love it.

AleksandraPoland

Lovely mix of prints :3 She’s so cute! Although, I’m a little baffled as to the short shorts AND bare shoulders! Must be hot this time of year, eh?

petitesam

@petitesam: That’s what I like about this look. Incidentally, it was 27 degrees Celcius yesterday, with a level of humidity that makes that heat feel much higher…

This is such a lovely outfit, I would totally wear this! The colors are just brilliant and they seem to go together so well. I love how simple it is, but still manages to look lovely.

@Maria and Kjeld: Sorry for not answering for such a long time, but I’ve been on a trip and didn’t have any access on internet .
But while being on my trip something great happend. I was still thinking if Bunka would be the right choice to make and prayed if it was (yes, i do pray :), that i’d find a four leaf clover. (because I’m alwasy trying to find one but that never happens…) And I did find one. Well, I told myself it could be a coincidence, but in just one and a half week i found 5 four leaf clover in 4 differnet places without searching for them. I just looked to the ground and there I saw them right to my feet… So I told myself, well yeah, somehow must be fate… ;D
Maria, I think it’s really great that you know so well what you want to do and that you’re working hard for it. Who knows, perhaps in two or three years we’ll find ourselves studying togther? Would somehow be wonderful… :3
Kjeld, thank you very much for your kind words, you completely cheered me up. If I suceed, perhaps we’ll run into each other someday? ^.-
Sorry for writing so much, but I really had to share this crazy story with someone, so thank you very much for reading all that weird stuff..
<3

@Leah: I really admire people who can put simple things like this together and make them work.

@Nyurah: Glad to hear that you are so encouraged after finding 5 four leaf clovers in 4 different places. But don’t leave things to chance, Nyurah. Make sure to work hard to make them happen, and believe in yourself and your ability to realize your goals. What you can achieve in life is only limited by how much you want and believe in it, how hard you work for it and how persistent you are. Work hard for it and keep on going. Even when you’re discouraged over and over. ^^ Looking forward to meeting you in Tokyo!

@Nyurah: I am very happy to read that you got encouraged! ^^ Remember there are always times when we get discouraged (just like KD wrote), but goals are never easy to achieve. Everytime I have a hard time with my grades (at both Japanese and university) I feel afraid of not being able to go where I want to go, but then I say to myself that I have talent (even if it is not true xD), so I can keep up.
