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.

Thanks, Mel and fonkychild. Quirky didn’t come to mind when I shot it, but I can see what you mean. I really like how Ai has repeated the mushroom theme in her dress with her necklace, and the color red with her ring. It’s this enormous attention to detail that I love about Japanese street fashion.

i think she owns a cat, when im looking on her bow..coz my black clothes look alike

I can’t tell if it’s the dress or just the picture that makes her seem extremely short…
However, she has a very cute outfit on.

@ojisanbaka: Oops, I should have taken a close-up of the watch! I also have a cat, but his hairs are very straight. Perhaps she keeps the bow with her other clothes instead of separate or in a container?

@bubababy: I wondered about that, too, after I saw my photos. I use a very wide lens, so if I don’t go through my knees enough it quickly affects what people look like. That may have happened here. Let’s give Ai the benefit of the doubt!

Once I bought a fashion magazine in Japan, which came with a Tsumori Chisato pouch. It was the first time I heard this name. It’s a very colourful pouch, but the colours are carefully selected (same with the above dress). I still have it and use it. ^^

I love her hair and kinoko necklace too!

I don’t like the Vivienne Westwood shoes though, they look so cheap. D: I don’t know why but I either love a VW creation to pieces or I think it looks awful. There’s nothing in between for me. The bag is cool but in my opinion it doesn’t fit her outfit at all. And if I’m not mistaken she’s also wearing a VW silver ring, right? :D I like that.

@gionbaby: Like this mushroom dress, Chisato Tsumori creations are always very playful. And like you say, she is good with colors. I really her designs.

That and kinoko necklace is cool, eh!

I think you’re right about the ring. And I agree with you on the shoes. I like them, but they cheapen the dress and the rest of the outfit. The design of those shoes would have looked great with this look if they had been made of leather or another quality material, don’t you think?

Kjeld Duits (photographer)

@Kjeld Duits: I totally agree with you on the shoes. That material was a wrong choice. It would look way better if it would be made of leather.

Oh, and I forgot to mention how much I love her make-up! It goes so well with her hair colour, skin tone and the clothes/accessories. (^^)

@gionbaby: Great observation on the make-up. You always notice the details well!

@Kjeld Duits: Thank you. People often say to me that I notice the details well. (^^;) Details are really important to me. That’s why I’m especially thankful for the close-ups on this website. (^^)

@gionbaby: Yes, I noticed that, too. I am very glad that you appreciate the effort that we put into providing all the extra details (from close-ups to brand data and prices paid)!
