Furry Tails and Collars

Dec 15 2010: People don’t have tails. But maybe they should have. They look pretty cool!

fotoclipping: It’s cool I think!!
zzd: i wanna be a vet when I grow up and people apparently use animals’ fur for their own personal intentions like to earn money from the people who would like to wear animal fur.I would be against that in every way.
Kjeld Duits: @Tessa: I really like them, too. They are very playful. “Everyone thinks it’s real.” — I hope some animal activist doesn’t throw a can of paint on you!

Your Favorite Japanese Designer or Brand

Nov 03 2010: Who is your favorite Japanese fashion designer and/or brand?

zzd: i like LIZ LISA !! It’s always on the jap magazine Popteen :) And i also like Harajuku lovers and Super lovers.
Arc: It’s an extremely difficult choice, but I would have to say h.Naoto. All of his designs just seem to resonate with me. There are a lot of things that I love about each of these brands though : ]
Kjeld Duits: @Maria & Misato: I find myself coming back to Comme des Garçons recently. Especially after meeting and photographing Karin, who actually works for the company.

Lactose Intoler-Art: I agree! (I thought I already commented on this, must have forgotten to push submit). This is a GREAT idea. Thanks for finding stuff that is relevant in Harajuku that isn’t just “Takeshita-dori kei,” if you know what I mean, haha. I put one of these on my watch items already! What did you usually search to find these hats for later reference when these disappear?


Japan Fashion Now in New York

Apr 24 2010: New York’s famed fashion Museum, The Museum at FIT, will curate an exhibition on recent Japanese fashion this September: Japan Fashion Now

Maria: Good news, the show will be until april, it was a hit so it’s going to stay some more time :3
Kjeld Duits: @kagitsune: I really enjoyed talking with her, and found she was quite well-informed. Found the Gothic exhibition. Beautiful stuff. WIsh I could have visited… Thanks for the tip!
kagitsune: @Kjeld: That’s good. :) Ms. Steele seems like she has a really open mind to unique fashion. Did you see the Gothic exhibit they did last year? (If you didn’t, you can see part of it online) @Jini: I checked out your blog. Keep working towards that dream of fashion design!! I’ll do my best over her in NYC! ^ o ^/


Men Take a Higher Stance

Mar 24 2010: Japanese men are going for high heels on their footwear.

Kjeld Duits: @kagitsune: I have always been in love with the male clothes of the European Renaissance period; I would love it if some of that flamboyance could be reintroduced into menswear. When I look at what male Japanese office workers wear, I feel depressed. They all look like grey mice who have been locked up too long and have lost all enthusiasm for life. Not a thread of imagination left…
kagitsune: @Kjeld: I agree. Fashion is a cycle in so many ways, including which gender wears the brighter, more ostentatious clothing. Men’s jeweled buttons of the past come to mind…
Kjeld Duits: @a*@rayis: Absolutely agree, although I think we’re in a period of time when gender lines in fashion are about to change again. So the idea of what constitutes a male or female look may become very different over the next 50 years or so. Looking back, much of what European men wore through the 1600s and 1700s would be considered quite feminine today.

Fashion Wars Come to Harajuku

Feb 22 2010: A new fast fashion company enters the fray in Tokyo’s trendy Harajuku.

green arrow jacket: that is awesome
Jini: Yeah, it will be difficult, but I think they’ll do fine, there are plenty of Japanese women who don’t want to look over the top right? I think this ITsI is a perfect brand for office women? Who want to wear fashionable yet comfy clothes? (: (btw yay for mailbutton!!! i wanted to suggest that, but that’s no longer needed o)
Paul McInnes: Hi Jini. Yeah – the clothing looks ok – basic and comfortable. But, like you, I think they have many strong competitors. Will be intersting to see how they do in the next year or so. I think it will be difficult for them.

Tokyo "Hair Style"

Feb 18 2010: Ever wished you could instantly change your hairstyle? These funky accessories make it possible.

Kjeld Duits: Yeah, I just mentioned that to Deanne’s boyfriend. I wonder if they adopted it for the meaning “darling” or “little treasure.” But it is quite a surprise to find Dutch in a Japanese company name.
Jini: haha ‘schatje’ design? that’s a dutch word… any connection? or random coincidence? hmm i like the designs though! but i don’t think i would wear it…
