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.

* O * what a awesome style!!! That hat mixed with that kimono is just the bee’s knees! And she has a great taste in music if she likes Stairway to Heaven ;)

I totally agree with Zjonni. Mayumis style reminds me of western/ european fashion in the 1920s, but in a modern, japanese way- especially because the colors and patterns are perfectly combined. Oh… I love the fabric of her (her grandmother’s) kimono. Furthermore I’m amazed how changeable, modern and innovative kimonos can be worn, see for example Kumamiki and Mayumi. I admire both.

@Zjonni & Zeuch: Thank you. There are several very modern touches to the way Mayumi wears her kimono. Like the design of the obi (the sash around her waist), the lace, the heart, the scarf and the bracelet. Small things, but small things matter in Japan.

@Kjeld Duits: Kimonos fascinate me and yet I know so little about this garment and the type and traditions to wear it. Thank you for your hints.

@Zeuch: I’ll keep my eyes open for more modern kimono and yukata (a cotton summer kimono).
