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.

Her make up seems a little bit daruma inspired. She looks like a cute and crazy techno daruma doll. Is it just me or having all these japanese people you showing us on this blog awesome manicured hands? They have always this hyper cute nailpolish or/and very, very neat hands.

@nora: Most women in Japan pay a lot of attention to both their skin and their nails. Manicure salons are everywhere. The climate also helps, it is very humid in Japan. After living in Japan for 30 years, my skin looks like 20 years younger than my elder brother’s, while he is only four years older…

She must be a strong and persistant woman, considering how she got her own brand! Strong women is love<3 I also just love her eyebrows and eyemakeup=) “Love a lot” ftw!

@Lord Stardust: Yes, I think Arika nico is very strong. Although, I’m sure she will disagree. ^_-

Good remark from Nora about Arika’s make up. It’s true, it could remind a bit of Daruma. Or, at least certainly an Asian feeling about it ; there is something reminding me of Traditional Okinawa (I have a picture of a woman in front of a restaurant from Okinawa, in traditional wear, and Arika’s make up makes me think of it).

As for Japanese girls and their skin, it is incredible how it is flawless. You are right Kjeld, the humid climate might have a special effect on skin; mine changed also. I think that eating less greasy food, less salt and less sugar, eating natto, and drinking green tea benefit in the same way to skin and body. And they don’t expose themselves too much to the sun (well, except for the girls in the Shibuya Gyaru movement maybe).

Anyway, her candy colorful outfit gives her a tonic and powerful atmosphere!
