POP'NCUTE, always pop and cute

Jun 01 2013: POPNCUTE, Harajuku’s underground music, fashion and art event, spread some happiness earlier this month

Kjeld Duits: @MissMolly: Where do you live?
MissMolly: Aww this looks like so much fun. Wish there was such an active fashion scene where I live.


Tokyo's Gay Community Takes to the Street

May 31 2013: Tokyo’s LGBT Community tends to be hidden away and almost invisible. But on April 28, thousands took to the streets to protest for equal rights

Kjeld Duits: @emi: It is held annually. Maybe start saving so you can witness it in person next year, or the year after? If you put away just $4.25 every single day, you’d have enough money in two years. Extend your plan to three years, and you need to put away only $2.80 per day. A nice new goal, perhaps? ^^
emi: what an important cause for celebration! i love the energy and excitement present at this parade – it looks wild! wish i could’ve witnessed it in person. xx
Kjeld Duits: @Monik: Indeed!


Tokyo's Coolest Flea Market

May 30 2013: The L and R often give trouble to Japanese ears, and many people aren’t quite sure whether it’s the Yoyogi Free Market, or Flea Market. Either way, it’s the best market in Tokyo

Kjeld Duits: @Amanda Hicks: Did you check the links in the article, Amanda?
Amanda Hicks: We will be in Tokyo between 20-30th June, is this market on anytime during this period
Farrel: Hi,can u help me to choose a good flea market on june 29? Thank you very much


17th Harajuku Fashion Walk

May 27 2013: With temperatures slowly rising in Tokyo, the 17th Harajuku Fashion Walk took place yesterday

Kjeld Duits: @Deadly Bite: Thanks! Really glad you like this coverage. ^^
Deadly Bite: Everything is soooooooooooooo awesome!!! O There are so many incredible styles and so many familiar faces it would take me a lifetime to comment everything, so I’ll just say the first things that come to my mind in no particular order: -Risa looks amaaaazing in bright pink :D -Peke’s alien bag <33 -Kumamiki is back, and she’s wearing THAT yellow kimono OOO -Horie! I didn’t know her before, but she’s soooo cute! I have a new Harajuku idol :D -Japanese kids are too cute for this world :333 Oh, and I saw Ducky ( on the second group picture! :P Just like I said before: A-W-E-S-O-M-E :DDD

Tokyo Fashion College Students Show Their Colors

May 24 2013: “Dress in red, purple or dots,” Bunka Fashion College asked its students last month. The students more than met the challenge

manos: Nice!!
Kjeld Duits: @María: Thanks, Maria! I always enjoy the Bunka events a lot. And they’re right next door, as well. ^^
María: I’m glad you had fun. Amazing shots as always ;)


Bright Colors in a Grey City

May 18 2013: On a very windy and cloudy day last month, I met up with Ugko, ET, HASSHY and Acha, four very colorful people!

Kjeld Duits: @Emma: Would love to see your sketches. ^^
Emma: The windy photos at the top look so dynamic… I’m itching to sketch them!
Kjeld Duits: @María: Each person baked cookies at home for this get together.


Stockings and Photographs

May 16 2013: Last month, French street photographer Aurelien Violet held a photo exhibition at trend setting tights shop MAM AVANTGARDE. Check out who we met there

Kjeld Duits: @Monik: That is AVANTGARDE manager Momo, shot by Aurelien Violet.
(: Monik :): The girl with mickey mouse tights shot is awesome. I like very much the background choise for this one. Despite the fact that her creation is mind-blowing, she definitely knows how to pose to make the shot somehow unusual :) And that in the end was brilliant captured :)
Kjeld Duits: @toybox: Yes, this was fun!


Two Illustrators Who Love Drawing Cute Girls

May 11 2013: This week I met Machico and gm, two Japanese illustrators who love drawing cute and colorful girls

Kjeld Duits: @hannah, Soru: On Wednesday morning 1:00 am Japan time, a page allowing you to purchase the tights will go up. Then every so many days we’ll put up a page for another product item. The number of tights is very limited, so if you are interested, you better purchase them as soon as the page goes live. 1:00 am Japan Time = U.S.A. Los Angeles – Tuesday, June 4, 2013, 09:00 New York – Tuesday, June 4, 2013, 12:00 EUROPE Paris (France) – Tuesday, June 4, 2013, 18:00
hannah: @Kjeld: sounds great! Thank you for the responses!
Kjeld Duits: I met with Machico and gm today. We have decided to sell their postcards, badges, stickers, iPhone cases and tights on JAPANESE STREETS. Preparations will take about 1 to 2 weeks. Stay tuned!
