JAPANESE STREETS in VOGUE

VOGUE highlights JAPANESE STREETS in a feature about fashion blogs from all over the world

Bookmark and Share

VOGUE.fr features JAPANESE STREETS in its LE TOUR DU MONDE EN 45 BLOGS (Around the World in 45 blogs) feature.

The feature, as the name implies, introduces 45 fashion blogs from all over the world. It is really fun to see fashion blogs from places as disparate as Copenhagen and Beijing all together in one feature.

Each introduction features a representative photo and a short description. The write up for JS is a bit longer than for other blogs and reveals a carefully kept secret, my age…

FRENCH (Original)

JAPON

Japanese Streets

Journaliste et photographe de 50 ans, Kjeld Duits a lancé son blog en 2005 pour chasser les idées reçues sur les Japonais. “Je sentais que je pouvais utiliser mon blog pour dissiper quelques-uns des stéréotypes bizarres attribués aux Japonais. Un des plus commun est que les Japonais ont un style vestimentaire ennuyeux et peu original. Japanese Streets a comme but de prouver le contraire.” Le blog couvre tout, du gothique à la mode girly, et parle également des designers japonais indépendants.

Le must : les street looks de Japonese Streets sont triés par couleur.

ENGLISH (unofficial translation by me)

JAPAN

Japanese Streets

50-year-old journalist and photographer Kjeld Duits launched his blog in 2005 [wrong, should be 2002] to dispel misconceptions about the Japanese.

“I felt I could use my blog to dispel some of the bizarre stereotypes attributed to the Japanese. One of the most common ones is that Japanese style is boring and unimaginative. Japanese Streets has the goal to prove otherwise.”

The blog covers everything from gothic to girly fashion, and also introduces independent Japanese designers.

Must see: Japanese Streets introduces street styles sorted by color.

Nice write up, I think. I love the note about our Latest Colors feature. Cool!

Incidentally, the list is organized alphabetically for the (French) names of the countries, so you’ll find JAPANESE STREETS somewhere in the middle.

It would have been nice if there had been a linked alphabet below the feature, now you have to click through tens of introductions to get to the countries that you’re interested in…

So to help out the impatient among us, below is the list organized by country. Please do visit the VOGUE feature, though! Especially, because that’s where you can read the introductions and see a representative image for each blog. It gives a great overview and the list is fun to click through.

Is your favorite fashion blog (besides JS, of course!) in the list? Which fashion blog would you add?

Note: VOGUE made one mistake in the description, though… It says JS started in 2005. I actually started JS in 2002, it was one of the first fashion blogs on the net. I asked them to fix it.

Kjeld Duits About the Author

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.
